Martyrs: Real Persecution


Vietnam, 1991- Le Thi Loi’s husband, a Christian pastor, was executed in a rice field after being accused of subversion against the government, tried and found guilty.
After his death, the government sent her a bill for her husband’s execution, the court “trial,” the coffin, the burial, and the bullet that killed him. The total was $4,000, which would take her years to repay. If she did not, she would be imprisoned. –From The New Foxe’s Book of Martyrs by John Foxe, rewritten and updated by Harold J. Chadwick, pg.351
