On 15 May, government authorities expelled seven of 10 Christian families from their village in Laos, and transported them to another village 12 hours away. According to The Voice of the Martyrs’ contacts, the authorities told the families, “If you want to continue believing in Jesus’ religion, you need to leave this village and go live in a village where there are Christians.”

The husbands were forced into vehicles while the wives were working in the rice paddies and this has resulted in chaos.

The families are separated and are having difficulties adjusting at the new village because their tools, utensils and belongings are at the old village.
