Learn how you can impact Vietnam
With a population of 96 million, Vietnam is one of the few remaining communist countries. In 1975, North and South Vietnam united under communist rule. All missionaries were kicked out of the country. The communist party has complete control over state policy and activity. Human rights violations continue—especially targeting Christians and ethnic minority groups. Churches face great persecution, including beatings, land grabbing, confiscation of property and imprisonment. The dominant religion in Vietnam is Buddhism and ancestor worship. It is estimated that only 1% of Vietnam is evangelical Christian, but evangelical Christianity is the fastest growing spiritual movement. There are pockets in Vietnam where God is greatly, miraculously at work building his church. Exciting opportunities abound to support the ongoing work of the gospel into Vietnam.
Support a Vietnamese church planter like Samuel
Pastor Samuel is 52 years old. He was raised in a San Chay family and practiced ancestor worship. He believed his dead ancestors were alive and present at the altar. He saw them as gods with power to help him. He feared his ancestors and would make food sacrifices to appease them and earn their favor so he wouldn’t be under a curse. One day his pigs got sick and he tried magic spells on his pigs but that didn’t work. He met an old friend who had become a Christian. When he heard the good news he prayed and invited Christ to be his Savior and Lord. The next day he prayed and God healed his pigs. He began to share the gospel with others. The police arrested him three times and threw him into prison. When he got out he went to Hanoi and received training to become a pastor. He returned to his home town and is now serving with Pastor Daniel in pastoring a church of 200 and he is planting many other churches in the surrounding area. You can support a church planter like Samuel for $50.00 per month. If you provide recurring, monthly support of $50 per month, we will mail you a picture and profile of the San Chay church planter you are supporting.
Give the 1st Edition of the New Testament to the San Chay
There are approximately 200,000 San Chay in North Vietnam and currently they have no copy of the Bible in their language; the Jesus Film is not available in their language, there is no oral Bible in their language. Pastor Daniel and a team of his colleagues have taken the time to translate the entire New Testament into the San Chay language. Would you like to be among the first individuals in Christian history to bring the first printing of the New Testament in San Chay to the San Chay people? The greatest missionary is the Bible! You can give a San Chay New Testament for $5.00 per copy. Imagine the impact!
Help The San Chay Kids
This picture was taken by Pastor Daniel during his recent visit to a new village that is unreached by the Gospel. The San Chay who live in the mountains of North Vietnam are very poor. The children of this village are in need of food and clothing. Daniel and the San Chay church planters are requesting the means to enable them to bring food and clothing to these children. By doing this, they will have the opportunity to share God’s love and the Gospel to these people who speak their language. Any financial donation will make a big difference in the lives of these children and the entire village will hear about Jesus. It will be just a matter of time before a church is planted in this area.
Provide a motorcycle-scooter for a San Chay church planter
The San Chay live in the northern mountains of Vietnam. The terrain is very challenging and the San Chay are spread over many miles. Many of the church planters can’t afford a motorcycle, so they have to walk to the various churches they are planting. Walking takes up precious time and prevents them from being as effective as they could be. A motorcycle is a huge blessing. It’s really a dream come true! You can place a big smile on the face of a San Chay church planter for $1,000. This will purchase a brand new motorcycle-scooter. If you donate the full price for a motorcycle we will send you a picture of the church planter with his new motorcycle and a little write up about his life.
