In October 2020, Maranatha Global Training, an English Bible training school in Dong Da, began a 2-year training program. Maranatha was founded by Camilo Ablao, Nguyen Dang Thuong, and Vu Minh Tuan (minister at Baptist Tang Cong Church).
Their mission is to prepare students for their calling, equipping them to help in local churches in Vietnam and wherever else they might go.
Maranatha requested assistance from CityPartners to purchase Bibles.
On March 15, 2021, CP delivered 20 bilingual English-Vietnamese Bibles from Bible Society Vietnam to the current Maranatha students. The students were delighted to be able to read scripture in both Vietnamese and English simultaneously, stating that comparing passages in both languages makes them easier to understand more fully.
There is a continuing need for volunteer Bible teachers, as well as additional book resources (Bible dictionaries, commentaries, etc.). Please pray for these needs and contribute as you are able!
