 Christian Man Risks His Life to Distribute 100,000 Children's Bibles in Vietnam

A Christian in Vietnam is said to have distributed more than 100,000 children's Bibles in one of the most hostile countries for believers, risking his life that he says God once saved from suicide.

Thirty-three year-old Bao, who works with persecution watchdog group Open Doors USA in the Bible distribution program, said he became a believer 14 years ago while he was still in high school.

"I thought life had no meaning," he recalled. "I felt empty — I wanted to commit suicide. My house was near a river, and many times I walked past it and thought: What if I just jump into the river to die?"

His Christian friends invited him to church at the time, and at first he struggled to understand why they appeared so joyful. Bao challenged God to prove that He is real, which he said happened one day during worship when he felt "God's Spirit come and touch me."

"My life completely changed, and I had a desire to serve Him," he recounted.

The risks come with the award of seeing people dedicate their life to Christ, he said, and noted that six years ago he stayed at the home of a local man while traveling in the country and shared the Gospel with him.

"That area was a quiet (Communist) area," Bao said. "They didn't know that God is love. They have to suffer under (spiritual) bondage. That's why when the Gospel came to them, their hearts were broken and they cried out."
