Meditate on this verse.
It has been said that, “If you don’t know where you are going, any direction will get you there.” These precious people have no direction in their culture, except toward eternal separation from their creator God. The Lakha people of central Bhutan are directed by teachings of Gautama Buddha that deny the existence of sin and have no answers for problems and suffering in this life. They customarily turn to alcohol called cheng, a common Tibetan beer made from barley. The enemy of our souls is very creative in all cultures to show his captives methods of how to make destructive alcoholic drinks from all kinds of things.
Approximately 10,000 Lakha people live in central Bhutan; nowhere else. They are descendants of pastoral yak herd communities. The Lakha are an unreached, unengaged people, with an unwritten language. There are no resources in their language, nor is there a radio station that plays anything in their language.
Pray that Global Recordings Network recordists will be called to visit them and record God’s Word in their language. Pray that the Lakha people will listen with understanding, and that the Lord of mercy will open their hearts to see their need for forgiveness of sin. Pray for the Lord to open the way for a church planting movement among the Lakha people of Bhutan. Pray for a movement of the Holy Spirit that will give them a hunger and thirst for His righteousness.
