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

 Unreached of the Day: Cham, Western of Vietnam

Cham, Western of Vietnam
Cham are the survivors of the Champa kingdom, which flourished from AD 2 until AD 1471. When the Vietnamese invaded their kingdom, most aristocrats fled to Cambodia; whereas, the poor peasants remained in Vietnam. Evidence still remains of this once flourishing civilization: grandiose temples and sanctuaries, irrigation systems, woven cloth, sculpture, and jewelry. Western Cham are a mixture of Cham and Malay, with whom they traded during the time of their powerful kingdom. Cham today tend to be timid. They are honest in word and deed, to the extent that stealing and lying are almost unknown among them.

Ministry Obstacles
Please pray the Muslim Cham people will be given faith to believe that Jesus is more than an honored prophet, but that he is the Son of God.

Outreach Ideas
Scripture is not available in the language of these people, but the Jesus film and Gospel recordings are available. Pray for workers.

Pray for the followers of Christ
It's not certain that any of the Cham follow Jesus Christ. If there are any, please pray the Lord will nurture them and send teachers to help them. Pray also for the Cham who will soon become Christian believers.

Pray for the entire people group
The Cham are a Muslim people living in a largely Buddhist and non-religious nation. Pray for peace for them, and that they will be accepted by their neighbors.

Scripture Focus
"He will have compassion on the poor and needy, And the lives of the needy He will save." Psalm 72:13
