Rev. 21:4, NET
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

Pray that the White Lahu people will get rid of their fear of spirits who want to drag them to eternal death and believe and receive the wonderful God who loves them and wants them to experience eternal joy and life.

White Lahu People

(This story is intended to illustrate the beliefs of this people group.)
Tears filled his eyes as the young White Lahu ran out of his house. He shot twice into the air with his small, old rifle. He was announcing the death of his father to the people of his small village located in the dense jungle of northern Laos. He began to shout in a loud voice, “go away you evil ghosts; you cannot have my father! You cannot take him to the dead house!”
Then he heard the sweet, calm voice of a woman say, “Don’t worry about your father. Remember how I talked to him about Jesus and the beautiful place called heaven where he could go if he accepted him? He believed in Jesus and is now in heaven.” The boy listened to her words and was comforted.
About 2,500 White Lahu people live in an isolated mountainous region of northern Laos. Almost 85 percent of them adhere to animistic beliefs. For example, they believe that there is a death ghost which tries to take the spirit to a place of permanent death.

Praise God that almost 15 percent of these people have become believers in the living Lord, even though many face persecution for their faith. Pray that these White Lahu believers will remain strong in their faith and be used of God to bring their people into God’s kingdom of peace. Pray for a movement to Christ among the White Lahu people.
