Thirteen Christians Arrested in Laos

On June 12, thirteen Christians were arrested by plain clothes police, after visiting Christian villages in Laos, according to The Voice of the Martyrs contacts.

The visiting believers met the police when they were in the village for their routine daily work. The police questioned them about what they were doing in the village. The police have not disclosed why they arrested the believers and at last report the Christians are still being held at a provincial police station.

The Voice of the Martyrs encourages you to pray for the release of these believers. Ask God to protect and encourage the believers in the villages that were visited. Pray God to bless Christians in Laos who continue to honour Him in the face of opposition.
