Vietnam: Church Faces Shutdown Order
As believers met for worship in Cuor Dang Commune, Daklak Province, local authorities entered the home where they were meeting, demanding that they stop all religious activities. The Christians who were at the gathering are members of the Montagnard people, an ethnic minority that frequently faces persecution because of their ethnicity and Christian faith. The government in Vietnam is also nervous about large gatherings, fearing “subversive activities.”
-For their continued endurance and protection, despite ongoing opposition
-That the local authorities too will experience the Lord’s transformative power in their lives
-That through the work of the Holy Spirit, may the Gospel spread throughout Vietnam

Ratanak International is a Christian charity founded by Brian McConaghy in 1989 that works exclusively in Cambodia helping the country rebuild after decades of revolution, civil war and genocide. Ratanak, which means 'precious gem' in Khmer, was an 11-month-old Cambodian baby that Brian McConaghy watched die as a result of a basic lack of medicine in a documentary he was shown in 1989. Since 1990 Ratanak has been working in Cambodia to help prevent such needless deaths. The organization works collaboratively to be a catalyst for transformation in Cambodia through a focus on empowering exploited people and addressing the systems that exploit them.
Please pray for:
- Justice and healing from the Khmer Rouge genocide of the late 1970's
- A display of God’s power and continued unprecedented growth within the Cambodian Church
- Deliverance and salvation for the millions of children in bondage to forced labor, human trafficking, and the sex trade
