Just a few days ago on Monday, October 1st was the 70th anniversary of the Peoples Republic of China. In our city of Hong Kong, radical protesters took to the streets bringing about destructive confrontations with police. It was one of the ‘most violent days’ in the history of Hong Kong and was an attempt to steal the spotlight from the celebration in Beijing.
The political and social turmoil gets most of the news headlines. But there is a bigger underlying issue which we, as Christians, are concerned about: Religious Freedom.
Over the last few weeks our ministry has put together a short mini-movie attempting to answer one simple question: Why Hong Kong?
The video takes a look at the unique history of this city, the current social and political turmoil, and our unique place in God’s master plan of China evangelism that YOU, our partners, have a part in.
If after watching the video you would like to make an eternal difference in Hong Kong and China, here’s how you can be a part:
Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if your church is interested in sending out a missions team.
We continue to ask for increased prayer for these three points:
- For peace and a de-escalation of tensions between the protesters and government
- For Hong Kong to remain as a base of religious freedom to strategically reach out to China with the Gospel
- For the continued safety of the Fischer family in Hong Kong
Blessings from Hong Kong,
Steve and Sharmin Fischer and the Fischer Family
