The first printing of The Most Important Story in Vietnam – 1995
As David had grown up in Vietnam as a missionary kid and there as a 10-year-old first began distributing Gospels of John with his missionary Dad, it was there that he first wanted to provide The Most Important Story to the children of Vietnam.
The Most Important Story was first printed in Vietnam in December 1995 under communism. The situation was extremely difficult. The pastor overseeing the printing had only recently been released from prison, so it had to be printed secretly by the underground church.
Dr. David Hunt
David was born into a missionary family in Vietnam and raised seeing firsthand the deep importance of spreading the Gospel. So many of the soldiers they shared the Good News with went straight into battle facing death on a daily basis. After working with church leaders for many years, David heard a consistent theme: “We do not have attractive, solid Biblical, and evangelistic materials to share with families.” After looking the world over for such material and finding nothing that met their criteria, he was inspired to create The Most Important Story. The Most Important Story (MIS) accomplished all he desired, resulting in over 92 million copies distributed worldwide. More About David’s Story
