Hakka People of East Asia

(HAHK-uh) – Pray for Naomi, a Taipei Hakka who recently became a follower of Jesus. Missionaries met her at Taiwan World Hakka Expo in October and shared the gospel with her. Her husband was there as well and conversed briefly with the missionaries. As often happens with new believers, her husband has forbidden her to follow Jesus and go to church. This is a common occurrence among the Hakka in Taiwan. Pray for a nearby missionary couple as they develop a relationship with the husband. Pray for wisdom as they minister to this family. Pray for Naomi’s courage and wisdom. Pray also for her dedication to following Jesus as she lets go of temple and ancestor worship.
