Da Nang has changed quite a bit in the forty years since the Vietnam War. It is no longer the French port town or American military base that many may remember, but it continues to be a place steeped with a deep feeling of nostalgia. In Vietnam, tradition plays an important part in every aspect of life, and Da Nang is no exception. In many ways, life in Da Nang continues as it always has. Men play Chinese chess in the afternoons, street vendors sell sugar cane juice and pho on every corner, fishermen mend their nets, and women tend to household chores. Some things never change and perhaps some things never should. But other things must change. While Da Nang has a good bit of Christian history, it is still an unreached city and that must change.
