Khang in Vietnam

Unreached of the Day  6/03/2021

Khang in Vietnam

Have you ever accidently got a liquid down your nose? The indigenous Khang people who live in interior forests of northern Vietnam have a custom of pouring drinks down their noses. The Khang make their living from agriculture and animal husbandry. They believe that evil spirits can bring disaster upon the living; therefore these spirits must be appeased through offerings, rituals and amulets.

Ministry Obstacles

Very few are followers of Jesus. Ethnic religion is deeply rooted in this people's identity making it very difficult for them to accept a "foreign" Savior.

Outreach Ideas

Vietnamese believers can build relationships with the Khang through business ventures. Medical and educational teams can help the Khang in practical ways.

Scripture Focus

"O LORD, what is man that you regard him, or the son of man that you think of him?"  Psalm 144:3

Scripture Prayer

Thank Him that He not only notices us but loves us as a father loves his children.

Prayer Focus

Pray that the very small number of Christ followers would grow spiritually and in numbers. Pray that the Lord would raise up pastors and workers to help begin Bible studies and plant churches in Khang communities. Pray the Lord would thrust out workers with the good news to all Khang villages. Pray that elders and whole villages would be receptive to Christ's goodness.
