Unreached of the Day  10/29/2018

Nung in 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.

Ministry Obstacles

The Nung may well believe that to follow Christ will offend their ancestors.

Outreach Ideas

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

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 for the entire people group

Pray that many of the Nung people will come to love God with their whole being and will walk in His ways. Pray they will be able to live peaceful lives and be able to care well for their families.

"Give thanks to the Lord, call on His Name; make known among the nations what He has done." Psalm 105:1
