A Prayer for Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon, lies in southern Vietnam along the Siagon River and north of the Mekong River. It is Vietnam’s largest and fastest growing city, the hub for economic and financial development.

Like much of Vietnam, the overall population of Ho Chi Minh City is very young, with over half the population under the age of 35. About 50 percent of people living in Ho Chi Minh City claim Buddhism as their religion. Behind that, approximately 30 percent adhere to no religion at all. Most people in Ho Chi Minh City are from the majority people group, the Kinh. They represent up to 90 percent of Ho Chi Minh City residents, with other minority groups like Khmer and Hoa people making up the other 10 percent.

As you watch the video clip below, please pray that those who live in Ho Chi Minh City will hear the gospel and believe.
