Hopelessness in Laos

Laos is just one country in Southeast Asia where the next generation is felling hopeless in the current economic environment across the world. Below is an article by BBC sharing the story of a new graduate from the top university in Laos whose only hope is to go to Australia and perhaps find a meager job as a sales person or field worker. These young men and women have no hope for the future, and really no one does, apart from Jesus Christ. The Bible says that it is appointed for everyone to “die once and after that to face judgment” (Heb. 9:27). So, the only guarantee for anyone is death. If you want hope to escape death, and the eternal fire of judgment in hell, then you must trust Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. He came to pay the wages of sin and bring the gift of eternal life (Rom. 6:23). Today, will you pray to receive Jesus? Will you lift up the next generation in Asia before the Lord so they will find hope in Jesus alone?
