Hong Kong

In December 2000, a conference dialogue regarding religion and Chinese society took place in Hong Kong. Professors and Ministers presented papers on issues of Christianity and Chinese society, religious freedom, and church and state. Some of the participants were from Hong Kong Christian Council and Hong Kong Women's Christian Council, with whom we are in partnership. These dialogues between church organizations in China and Hong Kong are laying the foundation for us and our work. We want to support and provide more opportunities for communication with and between our partners. Pray for: The continuing witness of the church and people of Hong Kong as they adjust to changes and challenges the future may hold. The Christian Conference of Asia as they work to overcome violence.
