God was speaking to the wavering Laodicean church, which was not committed to the ways of Christ. Like the Laodiceans, the Kinnaura people are wavering between several different spiritual directions. This is a dangerous place to be!
Pray that the Kinnaura people will fully dedicate themselves to Christ and be a testimony of commitment to truth and righteousness.
“Are you Buddhist?” The visitor asked. “Yes, yes. I am Buddhist.” “Are you Hindu?” Another visitor asked a while later. “Yes, the Kinnaura man answered. I am Hindu.” Yet a few minutes later the Kinnaura man was busy doing animistic rituals to keep evil spirits away. Which is he? He is a blend of all three religions.
The more than 60,000 Kinnaura people live on the rim of the world between 16 and 20 thousand feet above sea level. Although the Kinnauras have been designated a recognized tribe, there are several language groups within the Kinnaura tribe as well as subgroups within each group. How difficult for any missionary trying to take the gospel to them.
Isolation, complicated religious traditions, and multiple languages all make missionary work here nearly impossible. But our Lord has made a way. There are now 100 precious believers among the Kinnauras. Isolation, traditions and language are not a problem for Him to overcome.
A tiny flame can start a raging fire, so pray that the Holy Spirit inspires and empowers these believers to share Jesus to every one of their kinsmen.Learn more at joshuaproject.net
Pray that Kinnaura hearts would be softened to the gospel and that the truth of it will be evident to all who hear it. Pray for protection, boldness, and much fruit from the outreach of our Kinnaura brethren in Jesus’ Name.
