Eph 2:6, NKJV
... and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,...

Pray for the Talu people to soon seek the one who can give them a seat in heavenly places.

Talu (Tah-loo) People

by BO

What do you do when you get sick? Do you stay home to recover? The Talu people do this, but there is an added twist to how it happens. When a Talu person becomes ill, the people believe it to be demonic possession, so they leave them locked in a room until the illness passes.
These people do not have a set religion, but they put their faith in their own rituals which they have had for centuries.
With a population of roughly 15,000, the Talu people lacks any presence of followers of Christ among them. Very few people groups in China lack any evangelism the way this group does. Some of the challenges to reach this group are related to their language and location. It is unknown if they have a written record of their language, which makes it difficult to translate the gospel to their language. The Talu people are also located among the steep mountains of Yunnan Province. They are very different than the other peoples who have also been classified as part of the Yi cluster.

Pray for ambassadors of Christ to take interest in this people group. May the Lord bring long term evangelists to this area to give them access to the gospel. Pray they would be welcoming to outsiders and receptive to the good news. Pray that soon there will be efforts to disciple the Talu people in the ways of Jesus Christ.
