Growing up in a staunchly Communist village, Sop* only knew Buddhism and was clueless as to who God was.
But in 2010, Sop became a Christian, and everything changed.
Since then, Sop (43) and his wife Dara* have led many others to faith. But they have also faced violent persecution – forced to leave their village, their pigs poisoned and rice farm set on fire, and their children isolated at school and discriminated against by their teachers.
Sop says, “There are times when I feel like it’s me against the world and that the Lord has not provided me with people. But God sends people. He used your ministry.”
Thanks to your support, Open Doors partners have trained Sop and Dara in how to teach literacy, and their classes have helped soften the community towards them.
Sadly, Sop and Dara continue to be watched by the local authorities and prohibited from meeting with others to worship. They still need your prayers and encouragement.
Could you write a letter to Sop to encourage him and his family?

Please note that this letter-writing campaign closes on 30 December 2020.
