Grant & Rebecca Skelton
Ministry: The Skeltons have recently relocated to Hong Kong and plan to return to the US mid-2018 to be approved as Career BBFI missionaries and raise additional support. Though freedom to worship exists, Hong Kong is still largely an unreached city (93.5%unreached). The vast majority of Chinese citizens claim to be non-religious or hold to a formof Buddhism, Confucianism, or ancestor worship, while the foreigners still hold to their Catholic, Hindu, or Muslim roots. Sadly, right now, the majority of missionaries in Hong Kong are retiring and leaving the field and very few new families are returning to take their place. Multiple mission board websites state they have NO MISSIONARIES in Hong Kong and have put out the plea! Because Hong Kong has one of the highest costs of living in the world, raising the necessary funds to live and work there has become very difficult. However, opportunities for sharing the gospel, discipling believers, and planting new churches ABOUND all over Hong Kong. With so many nationalities who call Hong Kong home, you can reach China and the whole world from one place!
