Kucong in Vietnam

Kucong in Vietnam

The majority of Vietnamese people tend to look down on the indigenous groups, and the indigenous people near the Chinese border look down on the Kucong. Until recently, the Kucong were seen by many as almost animal-like hunter-gatherers. They are among the poorest tribal groups in Asia. Most Kucong live in south China, but a small group lives in northwestern Vietnam. The majority of them consider themselves Buddhists.

Ministry Obstacles

No written Scripture or gospel recordings exist in the Kucong language.

Outreach Ideas

Vietnamese tribal believers might be able to reach out to the Kucong people.

Scripture Focus

"One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts."  Psalm 145:4

Scripture Prayer

Pray that many from this people group will train their children in the ways of the Lord, who in turn will teach their children as well.

Prayer Focus

At least one village of Kucong people claims to be believers. Pray that they would grow spiritually and reach out to other nearby villages. Pray that the Spirit of God would move among them in such a way that there is an unstoppable movement to Christ among them.
