Tan Binh District – People on the Go
Points of Prayer
- Tan Binh is anchored by the Tan Son Nhat international airport that covers a large part of the land area of the district. Pray that God will call out many more laborers from around the world to fly to HCMC and share the Gospel, disciple Believers and start churches.
- Many factories and businesses also surround the airport, including many workers – pray for the Gospel to penetrate those businesses and neighborhoods and that we would see thousands rise up to follow Jesus as Lord and Savior and give glory to God.
- Pray for the people trapped by the spiritual strongholds represented by Chùa Bạch Liên, Chùa Giác Lâm, and idol and altar shops along Cộng Hòa.
District Tan Binh is where millions will enter Ho Chi Minh City from the air, home to an international airport. It is situated in one of the outer edges of the city center, so not yet quite urban and very local abiding together to give travelers their first impressions. Close to half a million people live in District Tan Binh.
There seemingly is a constant flow to this district, as people travel from the airport into other parts of the city, are out and about to work or take care of their daily life.
One of the oldest and largest pagodas (built in 1744) is found in Tan Binh District. Spiritual life plays an important part in the life of Vietnamese. They are looking for hope, for help, for something more than they can do on their own, but not yet knowing or understanding the One True God. Please pray for this district to know God Almighty and glorify Him.
And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.”
