Christian Celebrity

IFES Hong Kong student leader Esther writes: “In Hong Kong society, some Christian celebrities stand on moral high ground, disconnected from the citizens. It makes people think Christians hypocritical. God gathers our group as a testimony of unity through God's love (Ephesians4:2). We learn from and pray for each other, cooperate in God’s work. The number of participants and committees is declining. Ask God to rouse more Christian freshmen to be devoted to evangelism in college and think of different ways to spread the good news... Ask God to grant politicians wisdom and bravery to bring justice. We pray that our youth does not lose hope in the government and in our God.”

Lonely and alienated

Fiona*, a Chinese American, was ashamed of her cultural background and felt lonely and alienated throughout adolescence. Fiona never dreamt that God would one day restore her cultural identity by bringing her to Hong Kong to serve. “I’m amazed by how God had a plan all along to give me feet in two worlds,” she shared. “I now have a unique opportunity to serve ethnic minorities in my country of birth. Imagine that!” Because Fiona had never really interacted with Muslims before, she was somewhat nervous at first. However, because of the hospitality and friendliness of the Pakistanis, she quickly befriended several families and even began having conversations with them about faith. Please pray with Fiona for these families to eventually come to know Jesus. *Name changed

New Arrivals

Hong Kong is the first Special Administrative Region (SAR) of China under the "One Country, Two Systems" policy of 1997. Every day, a set quota of 150 people emigrates from Mainland China to Hong Kong. Family reunion is a condition for obtaining a residence permit and most are looking for manual jobs. In partnership with several local churches, OM Hong Kong runs an outreach ministry to New Arrivals (NA) coming into Hong Kong from Mainland China, amongst whom there are great needs. Combining evangelism and social work, activities include visitation, counselling and English tuition. Pray that this ministry will bear fruit.
