WHAT WE DO

In conjunction with believers from neighbouring Thailand, follow-up work is conducted among those who will read the material. This project provides enough finance to print and distribute packs of materials

Why: There are very few opportunities for mission work inside Laos. Doors are tightly shut, persecution is, at times, intense, and all traditional missionaries along with the overwhelming majority of national church leadership fled in 1975 at the height of Communist opposition. There are some state-approved churches now in Southern Laos though they tend to be restricted in their freedom by government controls. Most evangelicals function in secret. The provision of literature and Bibles is a marvellous boost to local evangelists in their work.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

Cost: Each Bible costs £2 to print and deliver. Give to Laos ministries here.

PRAY FOR

For protection on teams regularly taking material into Laos. For the Lord to prepare the ground in those tribes being reached. For local vision to evangelize among unreached tribes. There are over 130 distinct people groups in Laos. For increased freedom to church plant and evangelize. The Church has suffered greatly since the Communist take over in 1975.

Missions Quote

"Almost everyone believes that prayer is important. But there is a difference between believing that prayer is important and believing it is essential. ‘Essential' means there are things that will not happen without prayer." - Dee Duke
