When asked what Scripture comes to mind when thinking about their work in Vietnam, the Vos replied, “As God commanded Joshua, ‘Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.’ (Joshua 1:9) We trust and claim his promise that he will be with us and equip us for the ministry for which we are called to serve. Like Abraham, Joshua, Moses and others, our job is to trust and obey in God’s calling. We strongly believe that, when God calls us, he has a plan for us.”
