Light For The City is focused on sharing the love of Jesus among the Chinese speaking people of Macau through a partnership with the local church.



H.I. Class English Fellowship

The "H.I." stands for Hospitality Industry but signifies so much more. Providing a warm and welcoming community for people to learn and practice conversational English is key in these classes. Lessons are held during the week at times convenient to the life needs of the students. Each lesson is a stand-alone topic so students can join as their schedule allows.

H.I. Class English Fellowship


A Place to learn with friends

H.I. Class English Fellowship provides a safe, low pressure environment for adult E.S.L. students to learn and practice English conversation with native English speakers. Classes are held 3 days per week at times designed to accommodate the work schedules of the students. Each class is a stand alone lesson so that students can join class as often or as little as their schedule allows. In addition to topical and work focused lessons, there is a monthly special event. These events are designed to be fun and often include food. Family, friends and co-workers are always welcome. Every Wednesday afternoon, the lesson comes from a Bible passage that the students can read and discuss.

There is one taxi service that does reservation pick up. The taxis can be reserved by calling +853 2881-2345


Attire in Macau is generally casual. With the exception of a brief winter period (January – March), the weather is hot and humid. Clothing should be light but modest.  Shorts are acceptable as well as jeans. Men should bring slacks and women may want to bring a skirt or dress slacks for church. You will do a lot of walking in Macau so bring comfortable shoes. In the cooler months (December – March), a light jacket may be needed. You may also want a light rain poncho or umbrella. Again, we suggest you make a special effort to pack light.


Food of all styles (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Thai, Vietnamese) is easily found within a few minutes walk of most locations in Macau. Asian and Western snacks (candy, soft drinks, chips, cookies, etc.) and fast food options (McDonalds, K.F.C., Starbucks, Pacific Coffee) are also available. For those with a healthier mindset, there are plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables available in the local fresh market.


Bottled water is inexpensive (US$0.50 for 750 ml/25 oz.) and widely available. The local tap water is treated but we recommend only drinking boiled water.

Electrical Devices 

Currency in HK & Macau is 220V, 50 cycles AC. Most modern devices come with a power converter (electric razors, hairdryers, camera battery chargers, laptop power cords, etc.) but please check before you plug that smart phone in to be charged. The majority of power outlets in Macau are of the Type G style (three square prongs - same as Hong Kong and the United Kingdom.) Plug adaptors (not converters) are available here to deal with different socket configurations as needed.



Your hotel or guest house should have in room WiFi available. If you bring your smart phone, make sure to disable data roaming before leaving your local area or you will find yourself owing a huge fee. If you have a phone that is unlocked, SIM cards can be purchased in Macau for data and used to call locally and via IDD. The cheapest way to contact family is via a VOIP service such as Skype where WiFi is available. (please see above for information on purchase of SIM cards).


Bring your camera. Macau has many good photo opportunities and taking photos of the people you meet will help you tell the story when you get back home. While you are in Macau, enjoy being a tourist as it is a lovely city.


Soap, shampoo, toothpaste, some deodorant, feminine products, etc. are available if needed. But don’t count on always being able to find that special brand you like.


Please bring all the prescription medication you need. General over-the-counter medications are available. Mosquito repellant is available. Macau has two hospitals and multiple clinics if you need good primary care.


Macau is in the sub-tropics and as such, the sunlight can be stronger than your home causing some people to easily sunburn. A comfortable hat and sunglasses may be useful if you are spending large amounts of time outside.
