Taking children’s Bibles to Vietnam

Throughout 2015, thanks to your support, Open Doors managed to deliver over 3 million Bibles and pieces of Christian literature to persecuted believers around the world. That is amazing.

But, beyond the great numbers, are real people. Vietnam is full of wonderful people that you can more easily meet now, thanks to programs like visa on arrival Vietnam, encouraging visitors. Watch this short vid to meet an Open Doors worker from Vietnam who is committed to bringing God’s word to children, and see Bibles being distributed!

Where some of the other 3 million Bibles went…

  • In Central Asia, Open Doors partners distributed 1,004,815 Bibles and Christian resources.
    “God has been helping the church grow even without books; however, Christian literature is a wonderful tool that helps the church stand firm and mature! Our hope is that, through each book, God will touch the hearts of those people who seek Him and those who have never heard of Jesus.” – Alexey, Literature Distribution Coordinator for Central Asia
  • In India, Open Doors distributed over 70,000 Bibles, children’s Bibles and other pieces of Christian literature – a rise of 62% on the previous year.
  • In sub-Saharan Africa, Open Doors distributed 110,265 Bibles and other Christian resources. These included children’s Bibles, given out to children in refugee camps in Nigeria.
    “I hope this Bible will help me to forgive the murderers of my parents. I find it very difficult to get their death out of my mind, but I know there are answers in this book.” – Hafsat Barnabas, recipient of children’s Bible
  • In North Korea, Open Doors works through local partners to provide persecuted believers with Christian literature and other resources.
    “Thank you for the Christian books you sent us… We appreciate your support with all our hearts. It helps us go forward in our calling in Christ. We, the North Korean believers, are taking such a violent battering from the storm, but we will overcome with our faith in Christ. We will sail into the ark of salvation with faith, hope, and love for the future.” – North Korean believer
  • In Syria, almost 125,000 Christian books were distributed by Open Doors partners, including more than 30,000 Bibles and over 25,000 children’s Bibles. One group sent us a picture showing them studying the Bible by torchlight: “The Bible verses strengthen and comfort us.”
