Jai’s family cut him off from any inheritance after he accepted Christ
When Jai placed his faith in Christ in December 2019, his Hmong family was very unhappy with him.
They told him he could have no share in their father’s inheritance, and they divided the property among themselves. They accused him of taking a foreign religion and of disrespecting their tradition of ancestor worship. “I do not care for lands or houses,” Jai told them, “as long as I can keep my faith.” In February 2020, when Jai built a new house, his family and a village leader began to threaten him. Hoping to reconcile with his family, Jai invited his pastor to the village to explain the Christian faith to them. Jai’s family and other villagers listened to the pastor, but they told Jai that as long as he remains a Christian there will always be problems. The pastor told Jai’s family that he would return to talk with them again.
