 Unreached of the Day: Manipuri, Ponna of Myanmar (Burma)

Manipuri, Ponna of Myanmar (Burma)
Manipuris are often called the Meitei people. They like sports and they love to dance. They think of themselves as descendants of gods because of the Puya, a secret book written in Meitei script. The Puya says the original Meiteis were created by God in his likeness. They are made up of seven clans, which can supposedly trace their written history back to 33 AD. They are mostly Hindu, mixed with traditional ethnic religions. They pray to spirits for health, prosperity in farming, and success in cattle production.

Ministry Obstacles
The worldview of Hinduism/Animism is very different than the worldview presented by the Bible. Older adults especially, will find it difficult to accept such a different view and value system.

Outreach Ideas
Perhaps indigenous evangelists and church planters will be prompted by God's Spirit to remember the Manipuri/Meitei people of Myanmar, India, and Bangladesh. Pray for facility in the Meitei language for them.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Please pray for the few followers of Jesus among this tribe in Myanmar, that they will be zealous in their commitment to Christ, and will live holy lives, filled with the Lord's Spirit.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Manipuri will be able to provide adequately for their families. Pray for employment opportunities, and for good crop yields.

Scripture Focus
"This gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations and then the end will come." Matthew 24:14
