"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

  Unreached of the Day: Kawa, Vo of China

Kawa, Vo of China
The Kawa are the most primitive and reclusive group of Wa in China. Because of their isolated settlements, they rarely come into contact with outsiders and have retained their customs and traditions more than other Wa groups. Until the 1960s the Kawa practiced head-hunting. Members of other nationalities dared not venture into Kawa territory for fear of being decapitated. The Kawa do not generally like outsiders and prefer to be left alone. The cruelty of the Kawa is unquestionably without equal among all the peoples of China. "The ignorant minorities existed in constant fear: fear of demons, fear of the government officials, fear of landlords, fear of hostile tribes, and even fear of their own evil souls. The ghastly and bloodcurdling practices they developed to assuage their fears only resulted in further exacerbating them."

Ministry Obstacles
The Kawa's tendency to live in isolation and to avoid outsiders will be an obstacle to their reception of the gospel. Pray that gospel messengers will be sensitive to this and creative in reaching out to them.

Outreach Ideas
There are a number of Christians in other Wa groups. Pray some of these will take the Gospel of Christ to the Kawa tribe.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray for the few followers of Christ among the Kawa. Pray they will live in freedom from sinful behavior and will honor the Lord who has delivered them from fear and bondage.

Pray for the entire people group
Please pray the Kawa people will be completely set free from fear. Pray they will be delivered from the effects of years of violent and savage behavior.

Scripture Focus
"After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb." Revelation 7:9
