1 Kings 8:10-11, NIV
When the priests withdrew from the holy place, the cloud filled the temple of the Lord. And the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled His temple.

Pray that the Lord will become as real to the Aga Lahu people as he was to the Israelites who experienced His presence in the temple.

Aga Lahu People of Vietnam and Laos

(This story is intended to illustrate what is happening among this people group.)
Today we are praying for the Aga Lahu people, who believe in a god of creation, but they worship the sun and the moon. Gui Sha is their creator god, but they think he is too distant and unapproachable to answer their prayers. They usually turn to shamans when they have a practical problem.
The first efforts to reach the Aga by missionaries dates back to 1892. Although these early attempts were unsuccessful, recent outreaches have brought over 600 Aga Lahu to the Lord! They are so excited to know who the creator God is and all the wonderful things He has done, including giving the world Jesus. The light and passion to know more about God is very real to these people. Most of them cannot read or write, and their literacy rate is less than two percent. So hearing about God through translators is very important. This is definitely one of the most reachable people in this region.
There are about 9,000 Aga Lahu people living in remote villages spread out over the mountainous terrain of northern Vietnam and Laos. After years of darkness, these people are eager to know about the biblical God. The need for workers among them is vital.

Pray that God will bring the needed workers to reach the Aga Lahu with the gospel and cause their fellowships to grow strong. Pray for a full harvest among them.
