Acts. 2:17, NET
“And in the last days it will be,” God says, “that I will pour out my Spirit on all people, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy, and your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.”

Pray for a genuine move of the Holy Spirit to transform the Phutai people of Laos.

Phutai People

by EC

And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them (Acts 2: 2-3, NIV).
Each year the Phutai people of Laos gather together for the “Spirit of Heaven” festival. As one, the community offers sacrifices and prayers to induce spirits to descend from their heavenly abode. They believe that on that day a spirit truly communes with the people in a moment of celebration where some receive healing and others are struck with fits of laughter and revelry.
The event evokes the Christian day of Pentecost, though the true joy found in the presence of the Living God and the Holy Spirit is unknown to them. Most Phutai people are animists who worship 25 different spirits and rely on a female shaman who mediates with the spirit world.
There are around 154,000 Phutai people living in Laos, as well as large populations in Vietnam and Thailand. Of that number, there are only 150 Phutai known believers in Laos. They have no access to Christian radio broadcasts, the JESUS Film, or Scripture in their language.

Pray for the day of Pentecost to come to the Phutai people, in which the Holy Spirit would be the one who touches hearts and transforms lives, and for the Phutai to know and love their true heavenly mediator, Jesus Christ.
