Hidden in the back of her flowers, Co Hoa trims petals for arrangements she sells along the street to customers. October 20 is Vietnamese Women’s Day. Vietnamese women have many stories of stepping up to serve throughout the history of the country and should be celebrated.
The story of a woman, Jehosheba (2 Kings 11:2) who courageously helped subvert evil and keep a rightful king to rule is a brief account of how God has used women in the course of history. Jehosheba paid attention to the times and preserved the line of Judah from which the Messiah would come. What might have looked impossible and defeating, became possible and victorious. God always wins. Even when people or negative forces of our culture makes us wonder. Pray for the women of Vietnam to take courageous steps to know and follow God. #pray4vietnam
