The Need

Vietnam has a population of 96 million and is growing economically and in tourist popularity. Religion and politics are separated and most Vietnamese are polytheistic. They follow Buddhist and Confucian ideas, while continuing ancestral worship and joining in with Western celebrations like Christmas. 

The Vietnamese people are well-known for their hospitality and traditional culture. However, it is still a developing country with a huge population. This poses great challenges such as improving education, providing healthcare, eliminating poverty and human trafficking.

THE RESPONSE

At the completion of his candidacy, Global Interaction will have a presence in Vietnam through Mark. Mark has previously spent five years working in Vietnam with Hoa, former Global Interaction worker, at the Company of Grace. As a local follower of Jesus, Mark loves to see other Vietnamese people form a genuine relationship with Jesus. Mark is seconded to International Ministries.
