Persecution Update for December 2009: Vietnam

hg-picture-december-2009Two years ago two Christian attorneys, Nguyen Van Dai, age 40, and Miss Le Thi Cong Nhan, age 30, were sentenced in an unlawful trial to a four-year prison term. Both of them were converted to Christ through the testimonies of believers whom they had previously defended.  Vietnamese officials continue to violently harass unregistered house churches, such as Agape Baptist congregation near Hanoi. Recently Pastor Duong Van Truan and his wife were cruelly beaten.  Pray for grace for these believers as they shine for Christ in the face of such opposition.
