CambodiaIn a directive distributed on July 10, the Ministry of Cults and Religions in Cambodia banned Christian groups from door-to-door evangelism on the grounds that it "disrupts society." The directive also stated that the distribution of religious literature will be confined to church buildings, which can only be built if they receive ministry approval. Government officials said the ruling was aimed at reducing Christian evangelical influence throughout the largely Buddhist country amid allegations of believers using gifts to convert children.

Pray for the continued spread of the Gospel in Cambodia, despite government opposition. Pray that Cambodian Christians will echo Peter's sentiment and determine to obey God regardless of what man says (Acts 5:29).
