Asian Pacific Rim Unengaged Peoples

The Wenma Zhuang live near the Vietnam border and are known as “people of the soil” because they primarily work in agriculture. They are superstitious, believing in and worshiping spirits while trying hard to not offend them. The first Southern Baptist missionary to the Zhuang arrived in 1862. Eventually, churches were started, but today very few Wenma Zhuang are Christians, and no resources exist that would enable them to hear, understand, or respond to the gospel. Pray for Scripture translations for these who currently have none in their heart language. Ask God to burden the hearts of Christians to take the message of hope to these who live in darkness. Pray for Wenma Zhuang eyes to be opened and their long-held superstitions broken. “The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them” (Isaiah 9:2 NASB).
