Former Soldier Sacrifices Pension, Remains Faithful

[148] prayers in [7] nations have been posted for Phet and his family.

Phet, 71, and his wife placed their trust in Christ in 2005. As a veteran of the Laotian army with more than 30 years of service, Phet is entitled to a government pension but was denied it. The commander said he would approve the pension if Phet would recant his faith. Phet answered, “My family and I, we already accepted Christ, and we could not turn back to worship the ghost spirits any longer.” His wife and children agreed, saying, “God, our Father, will take care of us.” Phet’s family experienced increasing persecution in their village, and the police took their family registration book, which holds important records such as birth and marriage certificates, educational records, and work permits. In 2010, they moved to live near a married daughter in another province. The loss of the pension has left the family impoverished, but they have experienced peace in trusting the Lord.

I pray you work a miracle for this family and supply all their needs. You are the waymaker; move Holy Spirit. Help them forgive and look to you. Open a door; speak to the hearts of those who oppose them. In Jesus name

  • Father, as a U.S. veteran with a government pension, it's humbling to grasp the magnitude of Phet's sacrificial decision to not recant his faith in Jesus. That said, You are more than able to provide Phet and his family with every blessing - both natural and supernatural - in Christ. Please open Your storehouse in heaven and provide for Phet's needs.
