Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

(HOE-chee-men) – Thanh, Hao, Phat, and Nam have heard the gospel clearly, but they have not yet placed their faith in Jesus Christ. As believers share the gospel in the city, it can, at times, be a slow process. The vast majority in the city simply have no background or context when first hearing the gospel. They have little, if any, knowledge of the Bible or God’s salvation plan throughout history. Praise God that He is drawing these four to Himself, as they want to learn more and have started studying regularly with believers! Pray that they will remain consistent in studying and will draw other friends to study with them. As they learn more about God’s plan starting with creation and the fall, stories from the Old Testament, and more of Jesus’ teaching, pray that the Holy Spirit will open their hearts to make a life commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord. Pray that believers in the city will be able to start more of these types of seeker Bible studies with groups in the city, drawing many to saving faith. Pray these new believers will, in turn, grow through obedience-based discipleship, resulting in many new multiplying churches in the city.
