Lachi in Vietnam

The Lachi people of northern Vietnam have some unusual wedding customs. The groom and his best men are "tied" up in white cotton cloth. They must "escape" from their bonds with the help of the matchmaker and capture the bride who pretends to fight off the groom. The Lachis practice folk religion with strong elements of ancestor worship. It is the responsibility of the eldest son to make regular prayers and offerings to the spirits of their fathers and grandfathers.

Ministry Obstacles

There are only a few Lachi believers. No gospel recordings are currently available in the Lachi language.

Outreach Ideas

Hmong believers who live near the Lachi could befriend them and tell them about their Savior.

Scripture Focus

"On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate."  Psalm 145:5
