The people that we will be sharing with are the Yaos of Vietnam. These people are the hill tribe people. They are considered an “unreached people group” as there are only about 1% Christians in a population of over 400,000.Vietnam is not an easy place to minister. Workers are faced with the challenges of learning a difficult language, visa uncertainty, security considerations, and potential political upheaval. At the same time though, there are many opportunities. We are all committed to serving the Lord in this needy country. We are expecting Him to do great things in the future, and we feel privileged to work in Vietnam during these days.
