These three families are determined to follow Christ in their home village in spite of the persecution.
Bru community in rural Laos was so determined to drive out a group of Christian families that they resorted to drastic measures.
“They were so resistant to their faith, they were trying to scare them out of the village or to renounce their faith,” a VOM field worker said. Persecution began in 2018 when the villagers killed the livestock and crops of the three families. They even planted a bomb in their cooking fire, hoping to scare or injure them. The Christian families are also banned from using the village well. Even so, the believers are determined to stay in their village as a testimony to God’s power, so they requested that VOM drill a well for them.
