Centuries ago, when Vietnam was ruled by kings and lords, followers of Christ could pay a violent price for their faith. their bodies were literally broken – believers were tortured, locked up, and even executed for following what rulers called a “perverse religion.” Their families and communities were scattered. So began Vietnam’s legacy of long suffering.
Today, Vietnam remains hostile to the Church. Authorities beat believers, dismantle church buildings, and imprison those whose only “offense” is loyalty to Christ. These stories of Vietnamese believers will challenge your faith and deepen your understanding of the trials faced by our Vietnamese brothers and sisters in Christ.
