Livestock Slaughtered After Christian Remains Faithful

[225] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Jai and Tai.

In 2019, 80 people in 13 Christian families lived in Jai’s village in Laos. As one of the village leaders, Jai knew that these Christians were facing persecution from village authorities and the police. But Jai’s parents were believers and urged him to consider Christianity. He contacted a pastor, who led him to faith in Christ. Soon, Jai was removed from his role leading the village, and persecution throughout the village increased. Children under 18 were no longer allowed to attend church. The police threatened to destroy Jai’s animals, but he stood firm in his faith. On Jan. 5, 2023, authorities slaughtered all his animals: 4 pigs, 16 ducks and 20 chickens.

  • Verse of Steadfastness from prayer of Habakkuk the prophet:

    "Though the fig tree does not bud
    and there are no grapes on the vines,
    though the olive crop fails
    and the fields produce no food,
    though there are no sheep in the pen
    and no cattle in the stalls,
    yet I will rejoice in the LORD,
    I will be joyful in God my Savior."
    ch 3:17-18 NIV Bible 2011
