Bl. Andrew of Phu Yen
Andrew of Phu Yen is known as the "Protomartyr of Vietnam." Baptized in 1641, he was a dedicated assistant to Jesuit missionaries and was thus arrested in the purge of Christians launched in 1644. After refusing to abjure the faith, he was put to death in Ke Kham. Andrew was beatified by Pope John Paul II on March 5, 2000.
