It is time for us to mobilize in prayer for brethren in Laos. I spent last week working with the brethren in Vientiane, Laos. I was taken to the airport on Friday afternoon by Ken Fox and on Friday night the local police raided the last night of our meeting and arrested the foreigners present.
Currently in jail are Ken Fox, Jerry Canfield, Meg Canfield (Americans) and Udorn Intong (Thailand) and forty of the Lao brethren. The United States Embassy in Vientiane is pursuing the matter. I have sent brother Narongrit from Bangkok to keep us informed of the matter as he is throughly familiar with Lao government proceedures as well as the Lord's work in the country.
Please be praying for these brethren and I will keep you informed. This information is less than three minutes old at 12:23 pm Sunday afternoon Thai time.
