Thank You for Praying: A Report from Vietnam

On the evening of April 24, thousands of people gathered to participate in the Secret Church simulcast. Part of our time together that Friday night included praying for Vietnam, both persecuted believers and unreached people groups. As we prayed though, it wasn’t Friday night in Vietnam. It was Saturday morning – 12 hours ahead of Secret Church. Here is an awesome story from that Saturday morning in Vietnam. Thank you for praying.

One Vietnamese believer, Kevin*, was very concerned about his cousin who was in the hospital. She did not know Christ as her Savior, and Kevin had not yet witnessed to her. He had felt compelled to share with her before, but he had never made it a priority. Knowing that thousands of people were praying, he felt the Holy Spirit leading him to go and share that Good News with her. Praise God, even though she could not speak due to serious illness, she was able to nod her willing acceptance of Jesus as her Savior. The woman died one week later. She is survived by her husband and two small children. Her husband also heard the Gospel that day, and he is open to learning more. Thank you for praying! Please pray that her husband and children will find the peace that passes all understanding through Jesus Christ.

More on Vietnam and how you can pray for the people there. We’re still in the middle of our May prayer emphasis and would love you to join.

Less than 1% of all money given to missions goes to unreached people and places.*

That means that the people with the most urgent spiritual and physical needs on the planet are receiving the least amount of support. Let's change that!
