Hoa and Trinh's Story

One Family's Journey from Vietnam

Hoa and Trinh escaped Vietnam in 1975 with their two young daughters and found safety in San Diego. With the help of St. Andrews Lutheran Church and Global Refuge, the family received the welcome and support they needed to rebuild their lives. See how this welcoming congregation embraced and uplifted Hoa and Trinh and how the family continues to be a cherished part of this church community 50 years later.
