1 Corinthians 12:25

Six children from five Christian families were prevented from paying tuition and attending classes when school started in September. VOM sources said the head of the village, the police and Communist party members refused to let teachers accept the children back into school. Christians in another village have invited the children into their homes so the children can attend school in their village. They are providing the children with clothing, food, blankets and medicine, and they are paying the children’s tuition and transfer fees as well as a fee to stay in the village. The children’s parents have only been asked to provide rice for their children. When the five families converted to Christianity in 2007, they received threats and pressure to recant, but they remain strong in their faith. Continue to pray for these families, as they trust God in the face of discrimination.
