We visited several churches that we have supported financially in the past. It is so refreshing to spend time with these dear saints. We think we have helped them, but in reality, their love and enthusiasm for the Lord convinces us that we are doing what God has called Mission Vietnam to do. For years we have done compassion work, but now God has opened the doors for us to finally see conversions taking place. Thu Bon church is in an area that is plagued with evil spirits, but the Christians there are building a church that is truly a beacon of love and truth. Men from the community asked the pastor to come to a coffee shop and answer their questions about the church. When he arrived there were 20 men and the pastor used the invitation to share with them the Good News of the Gospel.The pastor and the congregation have put everything they have into the building the church (for 6 years they have been saving their money in piggy banks which are taken to the church every 3 months) to the point that the pastor and his wife have not had any new clothes for months. The wife started praying 6 months ago that the Lord would allow her to have a new dress and her husband a new suit for the Christmas holidays. God heard that prayer and was faithful to touch the heart of one of our teams members. Feeling lead of the Holy Spirit and having no knowledge of the wife's prayers, this person gave the couple enough money for a new dress and suit. It was not by accident that we visited that church.
This church has a congregation of about 300 people and is growing daily.
