Binh Chanh District – People in the Workforce
Points of Prayer
- Binh Chanh represents one of the areas of suburban fringe of the city, less densely populated and home to many factories, factory workers as well as more agricultural workers.
- Pray that Believers of the city would intentionally go out to the Binh Chanh area as the Master has commanded to share the Gospel, disciple Believers and start churches.
- Pray for the people trapped by the spiritual strongholds represented by Ni Viện Diệu Quang, Huệ Nghiêm, Nam Tông, Sùng Quang, and Từ Hạnh.
Binh Chanh District is located to the southwest of the city center. Families usually live in houses or apartments and often enjoy spending time together at local markets and parks. The district is home to many businesses such as restaurants, shops, and factories. Binh Chanh District offers a glimpse into the rural and agrarian side of Vietnam, providing a contrast to the urban areas of Ho Chi Minh City.
This district is known for its industrial development including electronics, textile, garment, and food processing factories and many of the employees come from minority groups of central Vietnam. Poverty in their home province leads them to come to the city looking for work, but they also bring with them a historical and cultural background in Christianity. This district needs our prayers because the potential to start multiplying churches in these factories will spread and bring God’s Kingdom to throughout the city.
And the Master said to the servant, ‘Go out to the highways and hedges and compel people to come in, that My house may be filled.’
