Christians Persecuted In Laos

by | Wed, Sep 21 2022

The persecution of Christians continues unabated in the Southeast Asian nation of Laos.

Joe Handley from Asian Access which trains Christian church leaders told Mission Network News the government fears the power of the Gospel.

“I think the reality is the government for whatever reason is intimidated by followers of Jesus,” he said.

“I know some people that had to completely abandon the town they’re in and go to some nearby city or nearby area, or even into the forest, just to rebuild their lives.”

“Others have spent time in prison for what they’ve done, and eventually get let out. And they go right back to business as usual, starting the church again.”

Laos has a state-sanctioned church, but the government keeps a tight rein on Gospel proclamation.

Asian Access works with other ministries to provide aid and legal help to Laotian believers.
