I ask because I noticed a lot of Asians that are Christian typically don't live in their country of origin. Many move to America, Australia, or the UK for whatever reason. I am just curious to know of Christianity is a thing in Vietnam.

There are about 1.5 million Christians in Vietnam. Amazingly, many young people are. It is a Christianity of the Inquisition, with extremely-devoted members who go to mass at least 2 times a day, many 5 times. Most of them are Christians since generations. For them, it is among other things a way to counter communism, though the Viet communism have nothing to do with the Chinese one ; the Viet politicians have understood long time ago that theeebst way to have happy citizens is to live them alone as long as they follow the Law.

@Larsay Wow, I did not know this! You learn something new every day I suppose. Do they live in the same area or are they more spread out? Are there any big ministries in Vietnam?

Christians are everywhere in the world. I think it is one of few if not the only religion that you will find everywhere and this is likely down to their traveling ministries.

Yes, but not as many as other nations. It really depends on where you are. I think they are mostly in collected areas to be with each other.

7% of the country is said to be some form of Christianity but it seems like Catholicism is the most popular branch in Vietnam.

@truebaby That is what I have heard and read as well. I am not too familiar with all the different branches. Where I live, there are just standard Christians, Catholics, and Protestants.

I have met some. As mentioned, a lot of them are younger. Many under the age of 30. I think it is a longing for more and trying to explore life and spirituality while being true to their culture is what made them become Christian.
