Christian Threatened by Village Leaders

[208] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Kham.

When Kham, a Khmu believer in Laos, planned a thanksgiving celebration for the new year, community elders confronted him and gave him an ultimatum: They forbade him from worshiping the Christian God and demanded that he cancel the celebration. Later, the police and headman of the village also forbade him from listening to Christian radio broadcasts and evangelizing at the risk of being ejected from the village and otherwise cut off from the community. Despite all this, Kham stands firm with God and continues to listen to the Bible and sermons on an MP3 player provided by VOM, but his family is afraid because of the threats.
