Flavio came to faith in Christ when, while seeking work in a city away from his home village, someone gave him a Bible. When he returned home, Flavio shared the gospel with his family, and they all trusted in Christ as well. The 12 people in Flavio’s family are the only Christians in their village. Because many of Flavio’s family members suffer from a degenerative disease that causes paralysis, others in their village blame the family’s illness on their faith in Christ. Villagers also refuse to shop in the family’s small store because of their Christian beliefs. Pray that the family members will be healed from their disease. Pray for Flavio and his family to remain firm in their faith amid hostility from their community, and pray also that their faithful witness will lead others to trust in Christ.
