Granny’s Great Commission – Vietnam

Đại Mạng Lệnh của Bà

As part of our training, Bible school students have to visit other provinces to tell them about Jesus.

In July 2013 I went on a trip to the Highlands. There I met an amazing 76 year old woman, who turned to Christ in 2004. She was illiterate, but wanted to read the Bible. She prayed to God for this and He did a miracle for her. She started to be able to read, short words at first, and step-by-step was able to read longer words and now she can read the entire Bible.

She has many sons and daughters, and through her, more than 100 relatives have put their faith in Jesus. She has evangelised whole families within her wider family. For example, her son, his wife and their eight children all believe in God. Every month, she goes on a short mission trip throughout the Highlands.

She wants to go to the middle of Vietnam and has been desperately praying for an opportunity. She’s even willing to travel by motorbike. She is weak and thin, but a fiery spirit of evangelism is burning inside her. When the youth at our church talk about her and her boundless energy, we are challenged.

Prayer needs:

  • Please pray for protection of Vietnamese Christians in rural provinces, where believers often face greater scrutiny by local authorities.
  • Please pray that local Christians are given the resources to witness.
