In 2007, at the request of Deacon Chua Doan and Bishop Joseph Nguyen Chi Link of the Thanh Hoa Diocese, Renewal Ministries took its inaugural trip to Vietnam. Vietnam has a population of 87 million people; six million are Catholics, and the Church is growing. It is a Communist country, but we are allowed to minister within the Church property, which usually includes parishes, rectories, convents, or seminaries. In our trips to Vietnam, we’ve ministered to priests, religious sisters, seminarians, and lay people. We have taught on faith, evangelization, healing, gifts of the Holy Spirit, and prayer ministry.
