Laos – Young Believer Denied Medical Care

John became interested in Christianity when a friend shared some Christian music and videos with him. He eventually came to salvation after a pastor from another village explained the gospel to him.

6 months after John’s conversion, his foster parents and relatives started cursing and treated him badly. They told him to stop believing in God because it is not the religion of their ancestors.

His foster parents also verbalised regret for taking John in after his biological parents died. They also refused to pay for a scheduled surgery to remove a metal rod in his leg unless he gave up his faith.

John, however, had decided not to give up his faith. He chose to continue to love and respect his foster parents despite the ill-treatment and said he would wait till he has saved up sufficient money before going for surgery. John says,  “I will believe in Christ until the day I pass away.”

We praise God for this young believer’s courage and faith in Christ.

Pray that God will bring comfort, encouragement and emotional support to John through his newfound family in Christ.  Pray that God will provide sufficient funds for John to have his surgery.

Do share this prayer request with your friends.
