Daily Topic for August 22, 2010
All nations are invited, therefore, all are blessed! God is inviting all nations to become part of the bride of Christ. There are some who have declined the invitation at this point, while others have not adequately heard that there is an invitation. The Kheng people are in the latter category.
Pray for God to send His servants to invite the Kheng people to the wedding!
In Bhutan, this is the year of the male iron tiger. The Kheng and other people groups in Bhutan will celebrate 21 national holidays in 2010. The Tibetan Buddhists in that country wear intricate masks and dance to folk music. The Khengs celebrate by eating raw meat on special occasions, which separates them from some Buddhists who do not eat meat in any form.
Kheng refers to a specific ethnic group of about 62,000. Kheng also refers to some ancient local kingdoms, which were autonomous until the 17th century.
There are a few believers among the Kheng; less than one in 1,000. They need teaching, but God’s Word is not available in their Khengkha language. The Kheng people have physical, emotional and spiritual needs. We know God loves them and is capable of providing abundantly for them.
We often remember to bring our personal families before God’s throne, but fail to pray fervently for God’s family.
Let us ask God to strengthen this arm of His family. Their weakness affects the entire body of Christ. Pray that the Kheng believers will mature and become strong members of Christ’s body. Ask God to provide the Bible and other Christian communication tools in their mother tongue. Pray that the Holy Spirit will guide them into all truth.Learn more at joshuaproject.net
