The neighborhood around this monastery and ancestor hall looked particularly poor to us. My heart hurt for the people there knowing that they had such physical needs in their life but also such emptiness spiritually. This monastery was started by a female Buddhist monk by the name of Huynh Lien and the monks who study here are all a part of a type of Buddhists that relies on the gifts of others for living and is focused particularly on meeting social needs, caring for orphans, helping the sick and so forth. Much of the focus of worship in this place is directed toward Huynh Lien herself and we spoke to a family who had come there to worship her and burn incense for her.
God I pray that you would open the eyes of the people here. God please let them see how much You love them and want them to return to You. God show them that your compassion and mercy so far exceeds that of any person that is living or has ever lived. God help them to know that Your mercy comes to all who will repent and place their faith in You. God please help the poor people of this neighborhood. Ease the burdens of their lives God and help them to see that the blessings come from You alone.
