THE STORY OF DUY LAM: FROM PRISON CAMP TO GOD’S VINEYARD
Joy, gratitude, and surrender to Jesus pour out of the presence of Duy Lam. He is amazed by his own transformation when he reflects on the road he has traveled. His story spans 40 years, from the atheism and reeducation (brainwashing) forced on society by the Vietnamese Communists, the years of hard labor and beatings that he received in a Communist prison camp as a teenager, to a life today touched by God’s grace.
“I saw an AM 820 bumper magnet and discovered that it’s a great way for me to learn about the Faith. I taught myself to speak English and as an engineer, reading English isn’t my strength. I discovered that listening to Fr. Riccardo, Fr. Larry, and Catholic Answers, gave me guidance on where to find out more and what to read.”
