A special on Vietnam, Part 1

Pastor Quang in Vietnam
VOM’s Greg Musselman recently traveled to Vietnam with Todd Nettleton of VOM USA and Denise Lodde of 100 Huntley Street. They spoke with several Christians about the persecution they have experienced for their witness. Denise produced a series about their travels that began airing this week on 100 Huntley Street.

In the first segment, you’ll meet Rev. Nguyen Hong Quang, a Mennonite pastor who is considered by some to be one of the most hated men among Vietnam’s ruling party. (If you’re a VOM newsletter subscriber, you can read about Pastor Quang in our February 2011 issue.)

A trained lawyer, Pastor Quang has challenged the government repeatedly on its violations of religious freedoms, and he’s helping those around him do the same. In the last 20 years, he has been arrested repeatedly and imprisoned, slandered in newspapers and followed by police. In December, an estimated 500 soldiers and police officers oversaw the demolition of a two-story building that was both Pastor Quang’s home and the headquarters of the Vietnam Mennonite Church.

Watch the first segment here, and discover how recent events are only encouraging Pastor Quang to speak even louder and continue to be a voice for those who have none.

100 Huntley Street is Canada's longest running daily talk show and a production of Crossroads Christian Communications. It is broadcast live Monday through Friday, reaching nearly every home in Canada.
