Persecution of Christians varies in Vietnam, but most frequently occurs in the Central Highlands and in remote rural areas. Persecution includes imprisonment, harassment, discrimination, threats and attacks.
Recently, with the help of our supporters, Voice of the Martyrs Australia has been able offer support to two Vietnamese Christian women, persecuted for their faith.
The first woman was beaten and driven out of her home and village. When she accepted Christ, the local authorities came to destroy her house. Her husband was afraid and became angry with her. He forced her to leave her house and her children behind. She is now temporarily living with a christian family in another village.
VOM supplied funds to ensure that the woman’s immediate needs including food are taken care of. According to our contact (who delivered the funds) the woman was overjoyed and moved to tears when she received the love gift from us. She thanked our supporters for helping her in her time of need.
The second woman was given comfort and financial assistance on the death of her husband. He had been a prisoner of faith for three years, and had been unwell ever since. Our Vietnamese contact visited the woman the day after her husband died. She brought with her the financial gift and words of condolence from us. Our concern, care and support have been a great comfort to the woman and her children in their time of grief.
