One Southeast Asian country has taken a positive step towards more religious freedom. A recent decree outlined a path for religious minority groups to be recognized by the state.

Joe Handley of Asian Access says, “This new decree, does give a little more leeway when it comes to religious freedom in the country. Pray for the trajectory of this move. It actually is moving. It’s a mixed bag, but it’s moving in a positive direction.”

This country has a state-sponsored church, not to mention a large number of Christians outside of it. Both groups have to be careful the community doesn’t see them as a threat, and the government tends to discourage proselytism outside of church buildings.
