Adding to the Fire Within the Hmong Ethnic Group

A Christian worker in Vietnam is doing all he can to add to the growing number of Hmong people who are turning to Christ. The Vietnamese government has long considered the minority Hmong untrustworthy traitors because they supported the U.S. during the Vietnam War, and its suspicions have been heightened by the increasing number of Hmong placing their faith in Christ. The government views Christianity as an American-based faith and accuses its adherents of being CIA spies. Nearly a quarter of the estimated 1 million Hmong in Vietnam have become Christians, and more Hmong live in China and Laos. The Christian worker has helped provide theological training to the Hmong for several years, considering it a wise investment in what God is already doing among them. “If we add to the fire, the fire will burn faster,” he said. Pray for this worker and for the many Hmong who have come to know Christ.
