Vietnam Crackdown

Christianity continues to grow in Vietnam despite continued persecution. Estimates say that there are 2 million Christians, up from 100,000 in 1975. International evangelist Luis Palau will travel to Vietnam in April to participate in the first celebrations of the establishment of the country’s Protestant church since the end of the Vietnam War. It will mark the 100th anniversary of Vietnam’s Protestant Church. Meanwhile, according to Human Rights Watch, minority Christians in Vietnam have faced increasing persecutions in recent days.
