HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM (HOE-chee-men) – The Mid-Autumn Festival, or Tet Trung Thu as it is known in Vietnam, is considered to be the second-most-important holiday of the year by many in this country. Often it is seen as the “Children’s Holiday,” with numerous activities related to children accompanying the holiday. Historically, children have been viewed as innocent and pure in Vietnamese culture and, thus, were seen as having an easier access to things spiritual and sacred. It seems almost to echo that which Jesus taught in Mark 10:15, when He told us to enter the kingdom of God like a little child. Sadly, only about 2 percent of the people in Ho Chi Minh City have taken that step of faith, be they children or adults. The Mid-Autumn Festival will be celebrated on September 19. Please pray for several evangelistic events timed to coincide with the holiday. Pray for clear presentations of the Gospel, and ask that many in the city will turn to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior with the commitment and humility of a child.
