Reaching Viet Nam requires that the Gospel is communicated. We must meet people where they are and adequately convey the truth of God’s offer of salvation and hope. Recent statistics reported 120 million active mobile phone subscriptions in Viet Nam. That’s about 1.5 subscriptions for every person in the country. The actual number of people using mobile phones is maybe closer to 40 million. More than simply making phone calls, mobile phone users are increasingly using their device for information and entertainment. At least 60% of internet usage in Viet Nam is through mobile devices and of internet users a majority report that they use the internet daily. If we are going to meet the peoples of Viet Nam where they are with the Gospel – clearly mobile devices provide one path to do so.
Please pray with us for greater opportunities to share the Gospel and discipleship lessons through the technology of mobile devices. There are very limited mobile tools available for sharing the Gospel in Vietnamese and much more is needed. Some projects are already being started, pray for the speedy production of more such tools and for clear discernment in this ministry.
