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

 Unreached of the Day: Manobo, Umayamnon of Philippines

Manobo, Umayamnon of Philippines
The Umayamnon are one of several subgroups of Manobo in the Philippines. The different subgoups are highly dispersed on the island of Mindanao. The Umayamnon live within the headwaters of Pulangi River in Bukidnon Province and Umayam River in Agusan del Sur. Agricultural production is supplemented by hunting and food gathering. They live very ordinary lives, mostly dependent on below subsistence-level upland farming, fishing from the river, and gathering non-timber natural resources. Their existence and survival are being threatened in their ancestral land by migrants and some other sub-tribes of Bukidnon and Agusan del Sur. They live far below the poverty line.

Ministry Obstacles
Lack of workers may prevent this tribe from learning more fully about the way of salvation found in Jesus Christ.

Outreach Ideas
There are many evangelical Christians in the Philippines. Pray the Lord will lead some to the Umayamnon Manobo, to tell them about Jesus.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are a few individuals in this tribe who have professed Christianity. Please pray they will accurately understand what it means to receive Christ as Savior and Lord, and to be real disciples of Christ. They need teachers to help them in this matter.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Umayamnon tribe will find ways to raise their standard of living. Their children need education, and they need employment opportunities and improved medical care.

Scripture Focus
"Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name." 1 Chronicles 16:28-29
