 Four believers arrested - Laos


Four believers arrested - Laos

Four believers from the Kasy District of Vientiane Province, Laos were arrested on August 2 and remain in custody. Two of them are Christian leaders from Vieng Samay village, Khamsay and Thong Soun. The others, Khamphaay and Pheang, are from Hua Muang village.

According to an August 20 report from Christian Solidarity Worldwide, authorities in both villages have been intimidating Christians, attempting to force them to renounce their faith in Christ. In Vieng Samay, Christians were blamed by a local witch doctor for six deaths in the village.

These arrests take place as the government of Laos appears to be easing restrictions on Christians. There has recently been a significant reduction in the number of arrests and the re-opening of a number of churches.

Pray for the release of these four believers. Pray that Christians throughout Laos will be bold in their witness for Christ, despite any opposition they may face.
