This week all congregations in Eastern District & Franconia Conference are praying for Vietnamese Gospel Mennonite Church. Pray for its members and Pastor Bao, especially during this time of health and economic uncertainty. As a congregation which began with immigrants from Vietnam in the 1970s, we invite you to pray for all immigrants, especially those who are seeking safety, food, work, and well-being in their surroundings. To read more about Vietnamese Gospel, go to mosaicmennonites.org/profiles.
