Siporn and his wife
Siporn is a faithful Christian and a member of the village council in his community.
In August, the president of the council confronted Siporn about his faith, promising that Siporn would succeed him as council president if Siporn would recant. Siporn answered, “I will not stop believing in my God, because I have found the truth and chosen the right path for my life.” The council then met without Siporn and voted to remove him from his position. “Being [on the council] or not, it does not matter to me,” he told a front-line worker. “I will thank God for everything.”
