Su’s husband, Te, sits quietly in the back of the group as Su begins their meeting with prayer. For over a month now, their small group of believers has been meeting in Su’s home to study the Bible and praise God together.
Mao listens intently as Su shares a story that she has never heard. She sits with the five children, all of them squirming and gasping at the stories Su tells.
Su, her two teenagers, and the five village children made a circle with colorful straw mats in the main room and sat cross-legged ready to begin their activities. Su’s sons began teaching the children a new song that Su had shared with them. The tune was a lot like songs the children had heard but with new words that told about the Creator God. As the children began to sing loudly, a woman’s voice interrupted the worship time.
This is the first of a four-part, fictional story based off of real life events. It is not a true depiction of one person’s life, but intended to be an example of the types of persecution that Vietnamese people face in their home villages.
Su wakes up to someone calling her name. The voice seems far off, more of an echo than a clear sound. She rises from bed and walks to the open window of her bamboo house and the sound gets louder.

We are excited to share two more amazing stories of how God is calling the peoples of Vietnam to Himself. Rejoice with us over these new brothers and sisters in Christ and continue to pray for many more to respond to the gospel.

Lien* quietly rolls up the mat she slept on and steps over her husband and children who are still sleeping. It’s 4:30 am, and like every day, Lien must prepare a meal before she goes to the fields for work at 5:30. She wonders if her husband even remembers stumbling up the stairs last night as she soothed her frightened children to get them to sleep.
