Od Sayavong is a political activist from Laos who fled to Thailand seeking asylum and refugee status with the UN. He has since gone missing. A human rights organization in Laos claims his disappearance is one of many similar disappearances in the region. They suggest that there is increased governmental cooperation to crack down on their respective dissidents in exile. In the last year, there have been at least nine cases of governments participating in arresting or abducting political refugees from other countries in the region.

Pray for the protection of those who are seeking asylum until their cases have been legally heard (The Bible, Acts 24:16).
