I was born and raised in Saigon, Vietnam, with Chinese parents who worshipped ancestors, Buddha, and other idols. My father’s business was seized in 1975, when the Communists took over Saigon. In 1978, for the sake of freedom, our family escaped the country. We travelled by train to China, then spent 30 days on a 40-foot sailboat to Hong Kong. My first contact with Christianity was at the refugee camp when a pastor came to preach every Sunday.
