Phum is seventeen. She became a Christian against her family’s wishes. They have beaten her, trapped her in her home, burned her Bible and hymnbook, and given her extra work. Yet, she continued to try to slip away to church. Recently, however, she has not been seen at church and has not had any contact with other Christians. Please pray for this young woman in Laos, to remain true to the God who has saved her, and pray for her family to accept His salvation for themselves, as well.
