For the last two decades I have been serving the country of Vietnam.  During that time God has enables me, through Mission Vietnam, to be part of many miracles.  Our organizations has sponsored two orphanages, provided vision for over 1,000 children with cataracts and built or helped construct 25 churches.  We were able to sponsor the first legal crusade at a soccer field in Saigon.  Hundred were born-again.  Being a Christian is not easy in Vietnam.  But by His authority and grace we have seen many new disciples in the country of Vietnam.
