Widowed Christian Threatened with Loss of Home

[226] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for La.

La and her husband became Christians while seeking a cure for his illness. Though he died three months later, they remained faithful due to the love and care they received from their brothers and sisters in Christ. In 2020, her daughter married a non-believer, and her son-in-law moved into her house. He practices animism, making offerings to spirits and trying to force his mother-in-law to do the same. He threw away La’s Bible and tries to keep her from practicing her Christian faith. In June, La’s son-in-law and daughter told her they would kick her out of the house if she continued to follow Christ. La continues to listen to Christian radio and receives encouragement from the church. She asks for prayer for her current situation. “No matter what will happen to me… I will not leave God,” she said. “I have hope that one day I could meet my husband again in the kingdom of God, and I will meet my God, too.”
