Philadelphia Pastor Speaks Out About the Miracle He Witnessed After “Protesters” Burned Down His Church


A pastor in Philadelphia is speaking out after his church was razed by arsonists and rioters earlier this week, revealing a miracle he witnessed amid the destruction.

As we previously reported, Pastor Philip Pham of Vietnam Baptist Church learned late Tuesday night that his church had been set ablaze amid yet another police brutality “protest.”

The destructive unrest followed the death of Walter Wallace Jr., a Black man fatally shot by police.

Pham told the Baptist Press that he had “no idea” why rioters chose his church that day.

“They burned it from the roof; they threw flammable chemicals on the roof and [flames] burned through the roof,” he explained, adding that the building was a “total loss.”

Still, God was not without mercy on this shepherd!

Pham told the outlet that his primary concern upon learning that the church had been attacked was a set of hard drives that contained over a decade’s worth of immigration paperwork, tax filings, and marriage counseling documents.

“I prayed right away, ‘God, please protect the hard drives,’” he said. “Other stuff can be recovered. But those files will never be recovered.”

Upon arriving at the church, Pham got the answer to his prayers.

“I saw the routers and modems and things surrounding the hard drives all burned, melted,” the pastor stated. “But that piece of hard drive, no harm. No harm at all. Just two feet above that, all melted.”

“That is amazing how God knows our needs and answers our prayers,” Pham declared. “He is an almighty God. He granted our prayer.”

Now, Pham is pleading for prayer, especially for the members of his church, whom he says “need encouragement.”

“The majority of us have very strong faith in Christ, but a minority, a few new believers, they need their faith to grow,” he said. “Pray for their faith to take deep root in the love of God so they can be steadfast in Him — not focus on the problem, but focus on Jesus. Please remember us in your prayers.”

Pham also encouraged youth pastors to ramp up outreach in the area, pointing them to James 1:20, which says, “Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires.”

“You cannot use your anger and be justified,” Pham declared. “I would like to bring this message to all the young people.”

“We are praying for Pastor Pham as he seeks to rebuild and to minister to the community,” said Ronnie Floyd, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s executive committee, according to Faithwire. “We must pray that our churches who are caught in the middle of senseless violence can be a light for the Gospel in their cities.”
