“I go wherever people want to go,” says Duc as he waits for an older woman to come out of the shop where he brought her. “I like this job because I can work whenever I want for as long as I want. I am my own boss.”
If you had a bird’s eye view of Ho Chi Minh City the streets would no doubt look like endless flowing rivers of motorcycles. While the vast majority of households in the city own a motorcycle, on every street corner you will also find multiple motorbike taxis, also known as Xe Om (pronounced ‘say ohm’).
Many people use motorbike taxis to go from place to place, favoring the cheaper and faster method of transportation over that of taking a regular taxi.
Pray with us for the numerous motorbike taxi drivers of Ho Chi Minh City with these requests:
—Pray for motorbike taxi drivers in Ho Chi Minh City that they might hear of God’s love for them and respond through faith in Jesus Christ.
–Given their contact with numerous people throughout the day and ease of moving through the city, pray that God would call out many motorbike taxi drivers to not only believe in Him but to serve Him as evangelists throughout the city.
—Pray for effective ways to share the Gospel and discipleship materials with motorbike taxi drivers that they might be able to read or listen to as they wait between customers.
Each day from October 1 to October 10 we will be publishing one of the 10 Faces of Ho Chi Minh City with prompts to pray as we lead up to our 10/10 Day of Prayer for the city.
