Asia In Mission

Thank you for supporting the work of the LCMS and our partner Lutheran churches in Asia. We hope you enjoy reading updates from around the region!

Greetings from Hong Kong

Rev. Dr. Allan T.Y. Yung, President of The Lutheran Church-Hong Kong Synod

Dear Friends in Christ,

It is with joy and faith that I greet you at this exciting and challenging time of year. You have been called into the light of ministry to serve Him and I offer you peace and encouragement through examples of God’s grace in our mission. We have been reminded of The Parable of the Talents, in which “His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord” (Matthew 25:21).

The Lutheran Church of Hong Kong Synod has been blessed with the care of many kindergartens, primary schools and secondary schools within Hong Kong for the past 65 years. Our mission has spread within Southern China over the past five years and we are delighted to announce the opening of a new school this month, Foshan Concordia International School. We have been faithful in Hong Kong and Shenzhen, we have been blessed with new opportunities in Foshan and amazing opportunities are yet to come.

When we freely give and are devoted to the service of God, he provides for us from unimaginable resources. Hong Kong is a small and populous city in which land is scarce. We try to use all of our school spaces to support ongoing mission work and churches. Rev. Peter Kolb and I share common wishes to hold an EnglishSunday service and we have been able to secure the chapel at Concordia International School for this very purpose. We are pleased to welcome the community to the first service on Sunday, October 18th, at 10:30am. It is readily apparent that, even in such a small and dense city as Hong Kong, when we aim to serve the Lord, resources can be found.

The ministry continues to grow when we move forward in our mission and service in the name of the Lord. Against all risks and obstacles, God will provide the resources to fuel our path to new responsibilities. All that has been provided is of God and is to be used to His glory. May heavenly faith and encouragement accompany all of my Brothers and Sisters in their work in Asia.
