Christian Teens Remain Firm Despite Family Pressure

[176] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Ton and Tan.

Since accepting Christ, Ton, age 17, and Tan, 15, have been harassed for their decision by their mother and older siblings. Their mother and the rest of the family are aggressively pressuring the girls to travel to Vientiane to prostitute themselves and send the money back to the family. The girls have stood firm against this pressure because they know that they cannot submit to their family’s corrupt plans. The girls are also refusing to marry unbelievers despite repeated attempts by their family to arrange such unions. Ton asked for prayers that she and her sister would be able to be good daughters to their mother.
