Y-Ben Hok


Pastor Y-Ben Hdok with this daughter

On April 28, 2008 Pastor Y-Ben Hdok was arrested by police in the Daklak province of Vietnam. After not coming home for lunch, his wife H-Riu Mlo went looking for him at the police station. At the police station the policemen had him in a headlock. In order for his wife not to see their abuse of her husband they kicked her and threw her out of the room. In spite of the fact that he had bruises and cuts all over his body the policemen claimed that he had committed suicide. His crime was that he was pasturing to 132 believers in his congregation of the Ede tribe.

He is survived by his wife and daughter.

John 15:18-21 (NIV) "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words I spoke to you: 'No servant is greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me.

It's sad but it's true... our world with all of the wounderful things added to it, has yet to add the measure of love that sustains humanity.

Blessings,
Matt.
