“Thai” was arrested in 2000 in Vietnam because he was a
Christian. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison, and his wife and four
children had to survive without him during that time. Thai was just released
this summer. He sent a thank you note to VOM, thanking us for our part in
helping him and his family while he was in prison. As our partners in supporting Christian prisoners and their
families, we want to share this letter with you.
I was very touched by what you do to help my family investment in coffee trees. You helped my family rebuild a new home and helped my wife when she visited me in prison.
I sincerely respect and write these words to express
our gratitude. I know you did something for us because you followed the
important teachings of the Bible in Hebrew 13:3.
I know that my family cannot repay all the things you have done for us. You have cared for us during the time I was in prison. We do not know what to do than just to express gratitude through this letter. Please receive our gratitude.
We pray God in the Trinity bless you in your footsteps everywhere. We also need your prayers as we pray for you.

VOM supports prisoners and their families through our Families of Martyrs fund, which also supports the families of those killed for their faith.
