Ton, 18, and Tan, 16, are teenage sisters who became Christians and have been harassed repeatedly for this decision. Recently, their mother said that she will sell her daughters to any men who make an offer. Their older sister has also begun trying to bribe them into a life of prostitution with offers of phones and jewelry. The mother pressures the girls to prostitute themselves and regularly mocks their faith. She is requiring Ton and Tan to provide food for their family of six, sending them to work in the fields to keep them from being able to worship or serve in their church. Ton and Tan remain strong in their faith and their love for the Lord, but they are under immense pressure and are saddened that their mother sees them only as a source of income.
