Wednesday's Voice - Vietnam Update

Update: Pastor beaten, Bible school attacked in Vietnam

A prominent pastor was recently beaten and his home and Bible school demolished by authorities in Ho Chi Minh City's District 2, Vietnam. On December 13, police arrested Pastor Nguyen Hong Quang, just minutes before authorities demolished his home and Bible school. The police beat Pastor Quang with batons so badly that he eventually lost consciousness. He was held in an undisclosed location and released later that day. Pastor Quang, a human rights lawyer and chair of the Legal Committee of the Vietnam Evangelical Fellowship, has been imprisoned several times in recent years.

Pray for healing for Pastor Quang, and praise God that he has been released and reunited with his family.

Pray for comfort and encouragement for all those affected by the loss of the Bible school, including the students who were forced to return to their villages.

Pray for the pastors, leaders and families in Vietnam to remain steadfast in faith, trusting in the Lord to guide them.
