Often considered rural districts, District 12, Hoc Mon, and Cu Chi are located on the northern edge of Ho Chi Minh City. These suburban districts have lower population densities and seem less jammed with people and traffic.
Moving out from the urban center, costs of rent, price of goods, and modernization lessens. For instance, the electric power grid does not support the whole of the city at times, and power outages in the outer-lying districts are more commonly cut for a time than the city center.
There’s a sense of a rural feel with more spaces between buildings or businesses and fields of rice or agriculture. People coming in from the rural areas into the city might also begin new lives here because it is less stressful than the urban city.
Culture and tradition among Vietnamese are ingrained with religious practice. The people in these northern districts need the Good News to be made known in their lives. Please pray for God to call out believers into full-time ministry to focus in these areas.
