Police Fear Growth of Christianity

Police in a province near the border with Thailand have become so concerned about the number of people converting to Christianity that they have forbidden worship and asked Christians to renounce their faith. On Sept. 24, police interrupted a worship service in a Prai tribal village and warned the believers that they would be arrested if they did not stop holding services. The police told them too many people are becoming Christians and they do not want others to accept the religion. They also said they think Americans are using Christianity to control Laotians. VOM contacts who met with the church leaders reported that the leaders and most of the believers are prepared to stand firm in their faith. Pray that Christians in this area will stay strong, and pray that police will stop harassing them.
