(WXIN-TV) Hugh Catron has been on a mission that started 43 years ago when he met missionaries Ed and Ruth Thompson as a young soldier in Vietnam in 1967.

“Sunday, they come to preach,” said Catron. “I knew all of them.”

Hugh and Ed Thompson would talk about God and the scriptures in between the fighting.

“Ed Thompson and I would argue about Bible prophesy all the time,” Hugh said.

But during the TET Offensive in 1968, the Thompsons and their team were massacred.
