Saturday, December 25 – Laos
Animists who worship various spirits are embracing Christ even knowing that it could bring persecution. Local missionaries provided digital audio players to people in two villages, and 17 members of a tribal group who had been listening to the
Christian content accepted an invitation to hear workers share the gospel. They all made decisions to follow Christ. In another area, five families who heard a local missionary share the gospel at a funeral put their faith in Christ – another 29 people. Workers need donations for the tools and training to cultivate strong disciples. Pray that local officials will allow house churches to continue worshipping the Lord.
“See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.” (Col. 2:8)
