Praise and Prayer

Pray: Underscoring the trials and tribulations Christians go through in many countries is this report from an indigenous ministry in Bangladesh:

"One family [of new believers] has been forcefully thrown out of their house. Their giving up the old faith and accepting Christ as Savior and Lord is considered a serious crime and a threat to the religion of the majority. They were told they must denounce their new faith in order to live in the village. Courageously, they declared that they would rather leave and live on the riverbank. Consequently, they were physically assaulted and thrown out of the village. All six family members are now living on the riverbank with no shelter."
