HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM (HOE-chee-men) – The traditional story of Cuoi is central to the celebration every year of the Mid-Autumn Festival in Viet Nam. This year, it will be celebrated on September 8. As the story is told, Cuoi’s wife offended a sacred tree, and as a result, Cuoi was transported to the moon and trapped there as punishment. For the holiday, people will make and purchase lanterns to display in an effort to light the way for Cuoi to be able to return to earth. The story itself provides a wonderful bridge to the Gospel, as believers in the city have the opportunity to share with their family and friends about sin and punishment and a path to redemption. Pray for evangelistic activities this month as believers share about the true Light of the world in Jesus Christ and how they can follow His Light to forgiveness and into the family of God.
