Emerson and Ivy Wu have been appointed by IM to serve as
Development Workers in Macau, a special administrative region of China, with
the supportive partnership of the Macau Bible Institute and Evangelize China
Fellowship (ECF). For a long time, Macau was known for its gambling casinos.
Drug, alcohol and gambling addictions, crime and prostitution were rampant in
this region near Hong Kong in which less than 1% of the population is
Christian. However, under the new government, many positive changes are
taking place. Better education and social services are two major areas that are
creating opportunities for the younger generation. The Wus will strive to bring
a new spirit to Macau by assisting in the training of young Christian workers
at the Institute and the ministries of the Grace Community Chapel and Orphanage
and youth outreach. They will also help to promote ECF and IM’s work with
partners in Mainland China.
