1 Tim. 2:5-6, NIV
For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time.

Pray that the Sou people will recognize Jesus Christ as this sole mediator between us and God, only spirit that matters.

Sou People

by CR

Yes, I am sending you to the Gentiles to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God (Acts 26:17, 18, NLT).
In southern Laos, over 3,000 Sou people live entrapped by spirits and ghosts. These unreached souls reside in an isolated mountainous region along the Laos-Cambodia border. Each Sou village has a resident spirit-priest or shaman. These spiritual leaders mediate between the animistic villagers and the realm of the spirits. One Lao author writes of mediums in such rural communities who have been possessed by “lords and princes” of past kingdoms, drawing on spiritual power to overcome present sufferings.
In 1962, a gospel recording was done in the Sou language with missionary help. However, this recording has been heard in only a small number of Sou households. Most Sou people know nothing of the gospel. To be reached, the Sou will need gospel material to be prepared in their own language, since very few speak or read Lao. The best hope for evangelizing the Sou may come through other people groups in Southeast Asia.
