 Unreached of the Day: Tamang of Nepal

Tamang of Nepal
The name Tamang means "horse trader." They are generally very poor people. The majority of Tamang follow Tibetan Buddhism, but mix this heavily with animism and to a lesser extent, with Hinduism. Their priests, or lamas, have a dominant role in the community and perform ceremonies for funerals, etc. Perhaps the most powerful person in society, however, is the shaman, who exorcises demons and interacts with the spirit world. Most of the Tamang live in Nepal.

Ministry Obstacles
The area is more open to outsiders than it has been in previous times, but there is still some difficulty in entering.

Outreach Ideas
The larger Tamang group in Nepal has a growing family of Christian believers. Perhaps these followers of Christ will see the need to carry the Gospel to the Tamang. Pray to this end.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are few if any followers of Jesus today among the Tamang, but pray for the ones that the Lord will soon bring to himself. Pray they will seek each other out in order to fellowship together. Pray they will be zealous to know Christ, and follow his ways.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray for the entire Tamang community to be able to care well for their families, to find ways to generate income and meet basic needs. Pray they will make schooling a priority for their children.

Scripture Focus
"And those who lead many to righteousness [will shine] like the stars for ever and ever." Daniel 12:3
