In this Communist nation, Christianity is branded as a Western influence, so believers are often seen as a threat by the authorities. Persecution is more common in rural areas and mostly comes from family and community. Sometimes new Christians are expelled from their communities and forced to live in the jungle for months, even years, before they can relocate.

Pray: For Christians in Laos to be bold in sharing the faith in the face of political and community pressure.
