The smell of incense and burning papers just overwhelmed me as we walked into this temple. This temple is dedicated to the goddess ‘Me Sanh’ who is the goddess of fertility. Many women come to this temple especially to pray to the goddess asking for children. Others come to burn incense or make sacrifices asking for other blessings. The temple was built in 1839 by Chinese immigrants from the province of Fujian in China. The temple is located in Cholon which is the Chinatown of Ho Chi Minh City.
While we were at this temple I watched a father teaching his 2 year old daughter how to pray and offer sacrifices to this idol. My heart broke. God please touch the life of this father and his daughter, touch their entire family that they might know You are the One True God. Bless them in their lives and their family and let them know the blessing comes from You. Convict them of their need to repent and turn to Your righteousness through faith in Jesus Christ!
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me. Don’t stop them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Mark 10:14
