A Brave Boy

VietnamTong comforts his mother

Tong is a 7-year-old boy from a Christian family in Vietnam, where Christians in some parts of the country are persecuted. In his village, Christians had a very hard life. So Tong, his parents, and other Christians left the village and fled to another part of the country.

The Christians started a church in their new village. The local police did not like having a church in their area.

One day, they arrested Tong’s mother while she was working on their farmland. They told her she would have to stay in jail until they found Tong’s father.

The police found and arrested Tong’s dad and released his mom. They treated Tong’s father very badly. Sadly, he died from the harsh conditions in the prison.

Tong’s mother is often sad since her husband’s death. Tong bravely tries to comfort her.

“[God] administers justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the stranger, giving him food and clothing” (Deuteronomy 10:18).
