Changing People's Lives one person at a time!
To some people the name Vietnam is synonymous with conflict, turbulence, despair or betrayal. However, if you come and live among the people in areas like: Bac Viet Nam, Bac Trung, Bo Viet Nam or Hanoi, you will find a nation in action, thousands of motorbikes, and people with sincere hearts–searching for a better way of living, even beyond what this world could offer to them. Even before the War a defining characteristic of the Vietnamese people is their sense of belonging, their love for community, and their belief that they are stronger together than apart. The Seventh-day Adventist message arrived in communist Vietnam around 1929. When the war ended in 1975 the church went through some difficult times due to the fact that many pastors moved away, mostly to the United States, leaving their churches without leadership.
Today, Changing People’s Lives, Inc. actively ministers within the communist country of Vietnam by hiring native lay missionaries across the country. And due to the humanitarian aid we provide, the communist government has come to appreciate and respect our work to improve the lives of their people. As a kind gesture to the native lay missionaries from Vietnam, Changing People’s Lives, Inc. recently sponsored one of the first gatherings of the native lay missionaries from around the country. Made possible by our dedicated CPL Faith Partners, we were able to give them recognition for their commitment and dedication, and honoured their hard work by booking them rooms in a decent hotel for a couple of nights at the rate of $10/night.
At the end of such an inspirational series of meetings they all came with the same request: “Thank you so much for your kindness in providing a hotel for us to stay but we feel that all these past days of training have been like being in prison two by two in each room. Would it be possible next time to leave us the way we used to attend before, where we could sleep on the church floor and stay up all night sharing our experiences and difficulties with all our companions? That way we could be united in EVERYTHING under one roof as one big family of soldiers for Jesus!”
At the present time, Changing People’s Lives, Inc. is currently involved in printing a very large quantity of the most appreciated literature within the communist country of Vietnam–books like “Christ’s Object Lessons,” “The Story of Redemption,” “End Time Count Down.” We also print thousands of bible study lessons, with titles like “Bible Tell Us,” and “A Way of Life.”
You could also help us respond to the urgent need of placing native lay missionaries among the Hmong people, who live in the northern part of Vietnam. A couple of months ago one of their major leaders had a revelation that CHRISTIANITY was the way for a better living. He traveled for days looking for help in his pursuit to find out more about Christianity. Lead by God’s guiding hand, he crossed paths with Changing People’s Lives, Inc. in communist Vietnam. Now, we are currently busy sharing Jesus and HIS love to more than 45,000 Hmong people! Come and partner with us. Experience life from a different prospective as you see the difference you can make within the communist country of Vietnam.
