In India, Hindu nationalists are responsible for increasing hate crimes against the Muslim minority. China jails Muslim Uyghurs by the million. The Myanmar government of Aung San Suu Kyi stands accused of genocide against the Muslim Rohingya. But Taiwan is rapidly gaining a reputation of friendly welcome towards Muslim migrant workers. The migrant workers are building the economy and caring for a rapidly aging population. Taiwan has increased the number of Muslim prayer rooms and halal food, which is encouraging Muslim tourism. Pray that the hearts of Taiwanese people will continue to be softened to Jesus, rather than won over by Islam (The Bible, 1 John 5:3).

Women in FinTech Initiative in Bahrain is new. It emerged as a consequence of the realization by a group of women working in different roles in the financial sector that a platform was needed to empower and encourage them to participate. Financial technology has been rapidly changing the global financial sector landscape over the past decade. It is shifting from the traditional financial services industry to an industry where technology and innovation plays a big role. Women in FinTech Initiative are not trying to create a divide between genders but to create a healthy balance and level playing field. Pray that this unique initiative will help liberate many women in their careers. Pray that this move will bring a healthy balance in the field (The Bible, Proverbs 31:18).
