If I splash you with water, will your sin be cleansed? The Tai Lue people believe so. As Buddhists, they celebrate the Songkran Festival, which is when masses gather in the streets to splash water and cleanse one another's sins. They are an agricultural community that grows a wide variety of crops such as rice, beans, sugar and cotton.
Historically, the Tai Lue people have been resistant to the gospel. The first Tai Lue church was formed in the 1920s, but persecution against believers pushed them to construct their own village, which remains "Christian" today.
Fortunately, the Tai Lue people have the JESUS Film in their own language. Pray that the Lord would speak through the film, touching many Tai Lue lives.
"Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever." Psalm 145:2
Pray for many from this people group to regularly praise the Lord and worship Him.
Pray that followers of Christ would persevere through persecution in Vietnam. Pray that the Lord would strengthen their faith to stand strong, despite resistance. Pray that the Tai Lue people would have ears to hear the gospel and spread it from village to village. Pray that the Lord would bless them with agricultural success and that he would prosper their crops.
