According to Open Doors International, Vietnam has moved to the #16 spot on the World Watch List for persecution of Christians. So what does this mean? In 2014 violence against Christians continued with reports of church buildings and Christians’ homes being destroyed. Many Christians in rural areas experience threats from officials and oppression from their communities. Producing and distributing Christian materials can be difficult and is highly restricted. The Communists still see Christianity as a foreign influence and keep tight restrictions.
Pray for Christian leaders and pastors, especially those in the north and central highlands where authorities keep a close watch on their activities.
Pray for Christians who have been persecuted to remain strong in their faith and to boldly proclaim the gospel.
