Walk in to any Christian church in America; the richest most elaborately decorated cathedral to the poorest storefront church and you will find one thing exactly the same in both--freedom to worship. Such is not the case for all Christians around the globe. Persecution is rampant against the church of Jesus Christ in so many countries and the stories are probably every bit all our imaginations can create--or worse. But not unless you experience such persecution will you ever really know how it feels to find your fate spelled out so clearly as it is in the Bible. For many around the world, the words describing persecution of the Church as found in the pages of The New Testament are every day possibilities--yet it fetters not their faith nor their dedication to practice it.

Come experience, first hand, the persecution against the Christian faith through the eyes of the Hmong believers in Northern Viet Nam. Told by author Sukalaya Kenworthy, "Hmong Means Free" is a short yet powerful story that lays persecution at your feet and makes you deal with it. You might be tempted to beg the author for more but the fact is this glimpse is more than enough to meditate on. Believe me, it's more than enough to contemplate at one setting. Your western thinking will be challenged in this moving story of how the Hmong Christians practice the truths of the scriptures while eking out a living. We sit placidly on cushioned pews while these courageous saints live a strong, deep seeded faith in as much secrecy and stealth as needed to accomplish Christ's commands in their meager lives.

Ms. Kenworthy also provides a glimpse of how American Christianity is viewed through the eyes of non-Americans.
