Nung of Vietnam
The Nung support themselves through agriculture, and are also known for their handicrafts. They have an abundant wealth of folk art and cultural activities including folksongs and alternative songs ("sli"). The smooth melodies of the "sli" are harmonious with the natural sounds of the forests and mountains. This type of folksong is a combination of verse and music. The Nung mainly worship their ancestors, spirits, saints, Confucius, and Kwan Yin.
The Nung may well believe that to follow Christ will offend their ancestors.
Christian workers can carry the Gospel message to the Nung by telling them stories from Scripture, as well as with films and Gospel recordings. Bridges of friendship are needed.
Pray for the followers of Christ among the Nung, that they will be sent teachers to help them, and mature believers to model Christ-like behavior.
Pray the Nung will be able to live peaceful lives and be able to care well for their families.
