Christians Worship Right Next Door to a Man Who Opposes Them

Two families in a Khmu village in Laos received salvation in Christ. One of the Christian families live next door to a high-ranking soldier who happens to despise Christians and who regularly harasses and threatens them, saying it is against the law to convert to Christianity.

Pray that these new believers will stand firm in their faith and not succumb to any form of harassment or intimidation. Pray that they will continue to grow in maturity in the fullness of Christ and their living testimonies will draw many other villagers into the saving knowledge of God.

Pray that this neighbour who despises Christians will himself have a personal encounter with the Lord Jesus and receive salvation.

Our Brethren in China Need our Prayers as Persecution Continues

Would you spend a few minutes every day to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ in China who are now suffering intense persecution for following Jesus.

On 30th December 2020, a Bible study conducted in the home of Pastor An Yankui of Xuncheng Reformed Church in Taiyuan was interrupted by 3 dozen men who barged in without warning.  Pastor An’s home was searched.  Choir robes, hymnals and Christian books were confiscated.

Pastor An and 5 Christian women were taken into custody. Three women were later released by Pastor An was sentenced to 15 days in jail. This is not the first time the Xuncheng Reformed Church has faced opposition.

Pray for the safety of Pastor An and members of Xuncheng Reformed Church. Pray that they will not be disheartened by the repeated harassments. Pray that they will remain firm in their faith and the  testimonies of God’s love and grace in their lives will draw others to the Lord.

Pray for many other Christians who are presently serving time in Chinese prisons. Pray that they will find strength and hope in the Lord always in every circumstance. Pray for their release.

Balloon Launches are now Officially Banned

Please pray for Korea and Voice of the Martyrs Korea (“VOMK”).

VOMK has been sending Bibles into North Korea through the use of balloon launches. Since 2005, approximately 600,000 Bibles have been sent into the North. However, the South Korean government recently passed a law making it illegal to send any “anti-North Korean” materials across the border through the use of balloon launches.

While VOMK is the only major organisation supplying religious materials across the border, other organisations are sending politically motivated or culturally based materials. This law, which takes effect in March 2021, punishes violators with a fine or imprisonment of up to 3 years.

Please pray that God will impart greatly needed wisdom and direction to the leadership of VOMK in the coming months, as they navigate how best to reach North Koreans who are desperately in need of hope and help. Pray God will give them new and creative ways to continue their ministry.

Pray that this law will be rescinded or modified to allow VOMK to continue sending God’s Word to those in need. Pray that God will bless their efforts and cause their ministry to flourish in spite of the restrictions.

Thirteen Hmong Families Beaten and Kicked Out

Thirteen Hmong families had to move from Northern Vietnam to the Dak Lak province after enduring physical beatings and having their land confiscated. Although Christianity is legal in Vietnam, many in the country see Christians as a threat.

Pray that these families will remain firm in their faith. Pray that they will adjust well in their new environment and they will be accepted by the community.

Pray that they will be living testimonies of God’s faithfulness and providence, and whenever they share the gospel message, many will be touched and receive salvation in Christ. Pray that even those who persecuted them will come to know Christ’s forgiveness and love.

Six Believers Evicted from their Village Need our Prayers

Six believers, from the Luang Nam Tha province in Laos, were evicted from their village in July 2020 because of their Christian faith. Armed village leaders and others invaded their homes and demanded that they leave the village. The displaced Christians are waiting for government authorities to hear their case and determine if they can return to their village.

Pray that these believers will remain strong in their faith during this period of waiting and uncertainty. Pray that they will be allowed to return safely to their village and continue their ministry. Pray that many others will be drawn to Christ through the sharing and testimony of these believers.
