In many areas of southeast Asia, there are many tribes who believe in “spirits.” Turning one´s back on them can mean betrayal and great danger. This is the experience of Thao Apao, who decided to convert to Christianity at whatever cost.
This act alienated him from his brother, who reported him to the local committee, which gave Aphao a document stating he denounced his faith. Therefore, he has been expelled from his community and rejected by his family, but his belief in the Gospel and salvation have helped him continue.
