Worship at Church in Vietnamese and Chinese
Our prison ministry reaches out to Vietnamese immigrants in the Taiwan detention centers. In the past 8 years, over a thousand people have been converted in the detention centers.
However, the successful ministry has had to be suspended, due to the authorities’ response to a recent incident.
Six Vietnamese immigrants used force to take the guard down and escape from the Hsinchu detention center. They were captured and sentenced to an average of 2 months in jail.
Our ministry partner, Pastor Thu, visited the escapees. “Why did you run away?” he asked.
“We still have large debts we owe in Vietnam,” they responded. “We want to stay in Taiwan to make more money and pay the debt.”
This is the common struggle the oppressed Vietnamese migrant workers face as a whole.
Letters from Prisoner Trung
The best day of Trung's 3 years in prison was the day a sister from the church came to visit him.
He describes the prison environment as a "dark and lonely world" where there are no friends, no relatives, and where each day is a boring repetition of the same machine-like routine.
But everything changed once he received the Lord.
He was like "a withering sprout that came back to life, finding true joy and hope."
Read his letter to discover how he experienced peace and meaning even from behind bars.
"The inmates are very impressed with our care and often send letters to express their appreciation. Currently more than a hundred inmates have been converted in prison."
