Ps 82:5, NIV
The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

Pray that the Ai-Cham people will soon understand that the gods they worship only offer more darkness, and that they must flee to the light of Jesus.

Ai-Cham (Eye-chum) People

by KH

To give His people the knowledge of salvation by the forgiveness of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our God…to shine upon those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. Luke 1:77, 78
Do you remember what it was like when you knew you would die one day, but didn’t know what would happen to you afterwards? Have you ever been in a deep, dark cave with no light source, experiencing darkness so intense you could touch it, feel it clinging to you?
The 3,000 Ai-Cham people sit in that kind of darkness. There is no one within their community to tell them the truth, that almighty God, who is light, loves them, and has provided the only way out of their darkness through the death of His Son, Jesus Christ, who paid the penalty for their sins.
Instead they worship a multiplicity of gods,  spirit beings, and ancestors for whom plates of food are offered several times a year for the souls of their deceased family members. These people are unreached, unengaged, and without a gospel witness. Few have any knowledge of their Savior.

Pray that audio and visual gospel resources will find their way into the homes of this needy people group. Pray that the Holy Spirit will pull down the strongholds that bind these people. Pray for a church planting movement to flourish in their communities.
