Vietnamese officials demolish Bible school

Members of the Civil Defence and Night Watchman
oversee over the demolition.
Our sister mission VOM Australia has learned that a force of 500 Vietnamese police officers, task-force soldiers and fire brigadiers used bulldozers to demolish Pastor Quang’s Mennonite Bible School in District 2 HCMC this morning.

Pastor Quang was one of many whose homes and businesses stood in the way of commercial development by the Vietnamese government.

Pastor Quang was detained. Sources say he was severely beaten. Twenty students were also arrested and interrogated.

Please pray for Pastor Quang’s safety and health, as well as the safety and well-being of his family. Pray for his immediate release. Pray the Bible School students would stand courageous and continue to proclaim Jesus Christ is Lord.

Stay tuned to upcoming issues of The Voice of the Martyrs newsletter for updates.
