What we do in VIET NAM

The country of Viet Nam has made tremendous advancements in the last couple decades, but as Jesus said, “The poor you have with you always.”  Our strategy in Viet Nam is to reach out to the segments of society with the greatest needs.  Some of these segments are the deaf, the lepers, and the yet unborn.  We accomplish this by partnering with faithful, proven national leaders who understand exactly what the needs are and the most effective ways to meet them.



Deaf Work

When Evelyn started holding some small sign language classes in order to reach out to the deaf back in the early 90 's, she had no idea that one of her first students would some day be an interpreter on national news! Over the years we have remained very involved in helping the Deaf community through livelihood projects and personal encouragement. With joy we have seen projects expand throughout the country and several schools for the deaf established. 

Leper Ministry

Through a series of events that only God could have orchestrated, we have been delighted to partner with a ministry that is reaching out to leper centers in Viet Nam. In most countries of the world, the Biblical plague of leprosy has been eradicated, but in the areas where it persists, those who are infected are restricted to living in centers. What we often don't think about is the effect this has on the entire family. The spouse and children often move there as well. At best their life is restricted, at worst they could contract leprosy. God has raised up an amazing woman of faith who leads a ministry not only to the lepers but to their families as well. No matter who we are, or what our situation is—in God, there is hope and a future! Because of several different issues, access to the colonies is limited, but there is no limit to prayer. Because we are working through local leaders, finances that are given are able to have a maximum impact in helping those whose lives are affected by leprosy


God is doing so much in Viet Nam! Here's the most recent update:

Electricity for a village

Being Light Sometimes includes Electricity

Vessels of Mercy is all about connections. In one remote village in Viet Nam this literally meant connecting to electricity! We are thankful for our partners who help us shine the light of God's love in very practical ways.


Although there were some very difficult circumstances back in 1967-1968 when God first put it in the heart of Bob Sr. to minister in Viet Nam, it would be over 25 years before that vision became a reality. During the last several years, God has opened many doors of opportunity there, and we have been honored to be a part of His plan for this nation.
