Look carefully at these packaged clothes and personal items. They are made out of paper and sold to burn as a sacrifice to dead ancestors. The belief that ancestors stay around and need their living family member’s help to live a better life or even to go to a better place after they die is a foundational traditional belief.
“The living at least know they will die, but the dead know nothing. They have no further reward, nor are they remembered. Whatever they did in their lifetime—loving, hating, envying—is all gone. They no longer play a part in anything here on earth.” Ecclesiastes 9:5-6
Pray for Vietnamese to read and know God’s Word to give them hope and salvation.
