This is a photo from of a secret church. It’s from northern Laos and shows a group of young people worshipping together in the middle of a forest.
Two months ago, these believers were threatened – other members of their village said they would kick them out of the community because of their faith. So they can no longer meet to pray inside their village. But instead of giving up, they are finding other ways to meet as secretly as possible.
One of our local partners, who is in contact with the group, says, “Please pray for them. Although they are safe for now, worshipping outdoors is still risky.”

We support people who are beaten, tortured,
imprisoned, falsely accused, and hated simply for following Jesus.
