The following letter to VOM is from a Christian in Vietnam who is thankful because his people have received the New Testament in the Hmong language.
His letter said:
“I thank God for using you to give us the best gifts, the Hmong New Testament, the books of salvation. I have distributed them to 128 churches.
“The churches and believers have changed so much since they got the Bibles. Many youths in the churches lived in the ways of the world. They did not want to obey and respect their parents. But now the Bible tells them that wisdom comes from God as it says in Proverbs 3:5–7. They know how to pray to get the wisdom from God.
“Now I know that God is living in them and changing them in surprising ways that honor the name of God. The Holy Spirit has changed them. They know how to lead a better physical life. They save more and do not waste anymore. They live cleaner and more peaceful with each other. They love God more and it shows in their activities.
“I hope you will keep praying and caring for us that that more people will get the Bible to have new life in God.”

- Read 2 Chronicles 2:10 to find out what Solomon prayed for. How are the youth in Vietnam in Solomon?
- In what ways did reading the Bible change the youth in the churches in Vietnam?
- Have you ever changed anything in your life because of something you read in the Bible or learned at church?
