Within the Hmong Fellowship Church (HFC) in Vietnam, the message of free grace received from Jesus Christ has replaced their old law-based preaching: Grace has brought peace to the Hmong Fellowship Church, and the church leadership has stabilized as a result. The communist government in Vietnam has noticed this positive change.
The Vietnamese government has invited WELS to build a theological training facility in the capital city of Hanoi.
This is an incredible, unprecedented opportunity for our synod. WELS is currently the only protestant church with official government permission to work with the Hmong in Vietnam. The Lord is opening a door to reach the more than two million Hmong people who live in Vietnam and the surrounding countries. However, this door can close at any time. Our WELS World Missions team is working quickly to ensure WELS is taking full advantage o the time the Lord has provided.
WELS is collecting a special offering through June 2019, with the goal of raising $2 million to purchase land, construct the campus, and cover the initial two years of operational costs.
