LAOS: Teen Barred from Church

Date of Bulletin: 30 April 2014

A 16-year-old Christian girl is being prevented from attending church by her Buddhist family members. "Tien" loves God and loves attending church, but her family has prohibited her from attending church because she refused to go to temple with them. Tien continued to attend church despite her family's demands, until her grandmother began coming to the church every week to yell at church leaders.

Tien has stopped attending church because she does not want to cause the church trouble. "I really love God and I want to go to church," Tien said. "Please pray for me, that one day my grandmother or my family will understand me."

Please Pray!

  • Pray that Tien will be allowed to go to church.
  • Pray that her family will see the change in her life and be attracted to Jesus.
  • Pray that the other church members will find ways to encourage her.

Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
