Unengaged, Unreached: The Phula of Vietnam

In every Phula home, a central room is dedicated to the worship of ancestors. The room contains an altar and a spirit door where the people pray and give regular offerings to the spirits of the dead.

Of 11,000 Phula in Vietnam, there are fewer than 40 known believers.

The Phula people are farmers who make an average of $70 per month. They are animists, worshiping many gods and spirits, including their ancestors. Currently, they have no Christian materials in their heart language, Phula.

The Phula people have yet to be engaged with the gospel. That means that currently no one is working to take the good news of Jesus Christ to these people.

Pray for the Phula People of Vietnam

Ask God to send out laborers among the Phula so that all of them will have an opportunity to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. Also, ask God to strengthen the few believers. Pray that they will be bold in sharing their faith and that their family and friends will be open to the Gospel.

Ask God to protect the believers as they meet together to worship Him. Also, pray that they will walk closely with the Lord and that their lives will reflect Jesus Christ. Ask God to raise up a church planter among Phula believers. Pray that he spreads the gospel among this group in Vietnam.

Less than 1% of all money given to missions goes to unreached people and places.*

That means that the people with the most urgent spiritual and physical needs on the planet are receiving the least amount of support. Let's change that!
