Praying for the Young Man in Vietnam

It was such a great blessing to hear what God has done through last year's camp in Vietnam. I met a young man last year who surrendered his life to serve God full-time.  He was the top translator of one of the pastors we met last year and was sent out after he made a decision to go and start his own work. When we went back to HCMC for the second year of summer youth camp last week, we were sad to not see the young man in the camp but, at the same time, were excited to hear that the reason was because he has already started a ministry outside the city.

We were informed that he is living in a small apartment that contains nothing much but only things necessary for daily living - no chairs, no tables or even a refrigerator. I am praying that our church in Makati can send some money for him to buy some other things he needs that can also help him focus in his work there - just a little bit of funds to help him buy racks and stands and other things like a bed or cooking and eating utensils. We are glad that he went where many of us could not go.
