Akha / Hani for your general
China is home to about 1.5 million Akha/Hani. Communist
teaching has abolished most of their spirit worship - no priest, no spirit
paraphernalia and no spirit gate. The older people want to go back to spirit
worship but the younger people don't like it. Their hearts are empty but they do
not know how to fill the void.
Myanmar is home to about 180,000 Akha/Hani. 30,000 of
these live in 120 villages in the area near the China/Lao border. Their living
conditions are very poor and they are hard to reach - no roads.
Praise God that a church
planting movement is underway among the Akha villages of North Thailand. Out
of a total of about 66 Akha villages, 58 have believers! Pray that the remaining
6 villages will also have vibrant worshipers of Jesus.
Pray for God to send
workers into the unreached Akha/Hani villages of north Myanmar. Pray for
believers willing to work cross-culturally. Pray for Akha believers willing to
leave their homes to reach out to their own people in other areas. Pray for
God's provision for all their needs.
Pray for the 1.5
million Akha/Hani in China - almost totally unreached.
Pray for the 30,000
Akha/Hani in Northern Laos - almost totally unreached.
Pray for the 180,000
Akha/Hani of Northern Myanmar - almost totally unreached.
