Paying the Price to Reap

"All Scripture is breathed out by God and
profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction,
and for training in righteousness, that the man of God
may be complete, equipped for every good work."

~ 2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV

Vietnam is one of the few remaining Communist nations in the world. Christians are considered a threat to the country's traditional religious practices and cultural identity. A backlash of discrimination, intimidation, property destruction, detentions, beatings, and forced renunciations of faith, are deployed as a means to diminish the church in Vietnam.

Christian activity outside of the church is met with stiff opposition, making evangelism difficult. There is also a shortage of Bibles in Vietnam, leaving many rural believers without direct access to God's Word. The rise of cult leaders throughout the country has been a considerable challenge for the church, as many are led astray by their false teachings. Despite these trials, the church continues to grow as it proclaims the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Teaching in Vietnam

To meet the challenges associated with growth, VOMC has partnered with OMF International in providing solid Biblical teaching to support persecuted church leaders in Vietnam through various trainings throughout the year.

This past year, sixty-five church leaders and their wives have been trained and equipped to serve the Lord in hostile regions. Filled with the Holy Spirit, and armed with God's Word, they are ready to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ. These leaders do not endeavour to make Vietnam a safe place for the church, but rather they pay the price to reap a bountiful harvest and bring glory to the "King of kings."

I want to take this time to extend my thanks to you for partnering with VOMC in this work. On this side of heaven, you may never know the full impact of your giving, prayers and speaking out on behalf of your persecuted family. May the Lord bless and keep you as you link hands with your Vietnamese family and proclaim the wonders of the "Great I Am" to your neighbours.

Grace and peace,
