The previous post told about some of the ways non-Christians in Vietnam try to discourage Christians from spreading the gospel. The following report from VOM Australia tells how policemen found new ways to disturb Binh and Uriah, a Vietnamese couple.
Binh and Uriah witnessed for Christ in their community and many local villagers were saved. Then a new trial was imposed on the family. Three policemen arrived at their door, saying they were going to live with them, right in their house! The police had orders not to leave until the family stopped their Christian activities.
Binh and Uriah were stunned. But the policemen told them, “We are in no hurry to go home.” The police warned everyone in the community not to talk to Binh and Uriah.
The couple’s children said to the policemen, “Why are you doing this? Our parents have done nothing wrong and we will still keep on our path.”
A policeman answered, “If you were 18 years old we would be within our rights to beat you, so be glad you are still small.”
Binh had a Bible and a hymnbook hidden, and the police have not found them. The family takes any opportunities they can to read the Bible and silently worship the Lord without the police finding out.
Other believers also have police in their homes trying to force them to deny Christ.

To Think About
If you were part of Binh and Uriah’s family, what are five things you would like Christians in other countries to pray on your behalf? Will you pray about those things this week?
