New Believer Tortured for Faith

Village leaders tortured a Hmong Christian recently in an attempt to get him and his wife to renounce their new Christian faith. After the couple refused to abandon their faith in Christ, the villagers hung the man upside down over a fire of spicy peppers. The acrid smoke burned his skin, throat and eyes, until he eventually agreed to renounce his faith. The couple has since fled to another village where they are able to openly follow Christ. Pray for this couple’s faith, and pray that God will soften the village leaders’ hearts toward Him.
