    “Those Christians have to renounce their faith! Otherwise, more people will die,” was what a witch doctor told a remote community in Laos. In March 2013 two evangelists brought the Gospel message to three Hmong and Khmu villages located nearly three hours from modern transportation. As a result, 178 people received Christ and 18 were baptized. Less than a month later, three men died in a series of unrelated deaths. One was given the wrong medicine, one died in his sleep, and the third was accidentally electrocuted while trying to run a cable line. The shaken community consulted with a witch doctor who concluded that the strange new religion brought to the village had angered their ancestors. He said the Christians should renounce their faith or leave the village or more people would die. The community leader told the believers to renounce their faith. So far, all of them remain committed, but they may soon be forced out of the village.

    What adorable children in this photo!
    :praying: we pray that You will shine Your Light into this place of darkness that those precious people can learn of You, to accept You,Lord of their lives, in name of Jesus, Amen

    These kind of requests are so heart-wrenching and hopeless with out God's intervention of His power enabling His children to share the gospel of Love to the lost and blinded(spiritually) people!
