 LAOTIAN AUTHORITIES JAIL 12 CHRISTIANS

LAOTIAN AUTHORITIES JAIL 12 CHRISTIANS FOR REFUSING TO DENY FAITH

Twelve Laotian Christian believers have been imprisoned in recent weeks for refusing to give up their faith in Christ, reported World Help.
Three believers were recently forced to appear before police authorities in the Phin district of Laos and arrested. Nine others were also imprisoned in the past five weeks.

In each case, the police gave these Christian leaders and church members the opportunity to deny their faith in order to avoid prison, but none complied. Authorities at the Phin District Prison were so upset at the believers for refusing to give up their faith in Christ that they forced many of them into around-the-clock hard labor with only a single meal per day.
Others have had their hands and feet bound in wooden stocks—the treatment received by the country’s most hardened criminals.
Family members who were allowed to visit their relatives in prison reported these abuses to a ministry partner who asked to remain unnamed for security reasons.

Items of this category come up over and over again when one watches the news flow from nations afar.
Solid prayer cover would bring our brothers and sisters through these situations with brighter glory shining.
Persecution produces Gold of a different kind, valid in Heaven.
Persecution produces a testimony of a kind which we rarely see among ourselves.
Our intercession adds to their spiritual strength, to their ability to handle the situation with much humility.
Our intercession will eventually bring one or two of the persecutors to a point where they will confess that Jesus is Lord.
What about our confession?
