Laotian Believers Arrested for 'Believing and Worshipping God'

July 28, 2008

On Sunday, July 20th at 10:00 a.m. ten district police authorities stormed into the Boukham Church and ordered the believers to cease their worshipping God or else they would face arrest and imprisonment. When believers refused to comply with the order, the ten police commenced to arrest five church leaders. The pastor, three church leaders, and one young lady, were treated as criminals, as they were carried away from their church and families to the Lao prison in Dong Haen.

Just as mysteriously, they were released two days later – no reason was given for their release.
