In January 2016 we visited the Rehabilitation Prison No.2 in Hanoi. We met with people who have been recovering from addictions and have experienced God’s salvation and restoration in their lives.
HIV Positive, Living with Hope
Thank God for His amazing work to change many broken people who are deeply addicted, suffering, and have no way out except to become His children. The Vietnamese Christian Restoration Ministry has been helping these people and bringing them back to God for years. We’re thankful to be able to attend their group and worship God with them with all our hearts. Praise God for saving them from the power of the darkness and giving them the power of the Holy Spirit through the Word of God to overcome and know the meaning of life. A lot of them have HIV but they live in peace and promise to spend the rest of their lives to serve God and help the other people who in the situation like them. We’re encouraged and graceful! Praise the Lord.
Former Drug Addicts, Now Worship Leaders
On a Sunday morning we were so blessed to be able to worship God. Do you see the worship leader, the drummer, and the musicians? These people were saved from the suffering of addictions! They are now the beloved children of God and want to serve the Lord with all their hearts. They want to use their lives to help others come out of the rehabilitation prison, accept God as their Savior, and help them stand firm in the faith. Thank God, after the altar call, there were 4 people willing to accept God as their Savior. Hallelujah.
Freed from Drugs and Witchcraft
Then we visited the residential quarters of the women. A woman shared that she was addicted to drugs for 22 years and doing witchcraft. But, by the love of God, He let her know Him and she accepted God as her Savior. Now, she’s married and she and her husband both serve the Lord. They are attending the Bible School to equip and help others who are in the same situation like they were in.
From Monday to Saturday, these women split into groups to do shopping, cooking and selling food to companies and spending time to learn the Word of God every day. Praise God for His amazing work. God’s work still needs a lot of support, helpers, and prayers to glorify Him.
