“Mai Bao” and her husband spent years seeking healing for her illness before finally asking a Christian to pray for her. After she was healed, Mai Bao decided to give her life to Jesus. But the rest of her Hmong community saw her change of faith as a rejection of their values. Both the villages and the village leader tried to pressure her to give up her new faith, but Mai Bao refused to deny Christ. Finally, her husband beat her and kicked her out of her home. She and her sister-in-law, who she had also led to Christ, were forced to live with a relative on a farm outside the village. When VOM contacts visited them, the women were grateful for the encouragement and the food that other believers brought.
Pray that Mai Bao’s husband will turn to Christ and that their example will influence their whole village.
