James 1:25, NIV
But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it--not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it--they will be blessed in what they do.

Pray that the Khua people will find perfect freedom in obedience to the God who controls the universe.

Khua People of Laos

by BK

The Nakai-Nam Theun National Biodiversity Conservation Area in Laos is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including over a dozen threatened species. Elephants share this space with muntjac deer, saola long horn deer, leopards, tigers, and several varieties of bears. But more importantly, there is a people group in this area called the Khua that Christ loves, and wants to become part of His family.
The Khua are a deeply spiritual people, with strong roots in spirit worship and an ingrained fear of demonic power. Their religious practices are based entirely around appeasement of demons and spirits, and the fear of falling victim to their wrath. There is no love or affection whatsoever towards the spirits in the animistic religion of the Khua. As this spirituality is a major component of the Khua ethnic identity, religious conversion, in essence, would equate to a cultural assimilation with some other people.
Currently, there are no known professing believers amongst the Khua in Laos. In a nearby area, however, resides a people known as the Bru, who do have a significant Christian presence. It is possible that some Khua have been exposed to the gospel through interaction with Bru evangelists from the area.

Pray that in Christ the Khua people will find freedom from their spiritual bondage. Pray that local evangelists would be burdened to reach their Khua neighbors, and that the hearts of the Khua would be open to hearing and receiving the good news of the kingdom of God.
