Open Doors: Laos

According to Compass Direct, nine Hmong church leaders in Laos have been sentenced to 15 years in prison because their churches had grown past the point Laotian leaders deemed "acceptable". Laos has no guaranteed freedom of expression, in fact, previously, Laotian believers were ordered to sign forms renouncing their faith. If they did not do so, they were evicted from their homes and villages. Please pray for these leaders, their families and churches and Laotian leaders, that they will come to know Christ and recant these imprisonments. (More info here.)
