The Lhop have a reputation of being shy, kind and gentle; their name Doya (daya) means kind-hearted. The history and the origin of the Lhop remains a mystery, but the Lhops have lived and evolved as a part of the Am Mo Chhu valley since time immemorial. According to a tradition in Satakha, one of the Lhop villages, they worship a deity called Talang.

Ministry Obstacles

The Lhop reside in a remote area of the world.


Outreach Ideas

Christian workers can carry the Gospel message to these people using oral means of communication: stories, films, and recordings.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There may be no followers of Christ among the Lhop community at present, but pray for the ones the Lord will soon lead to himself. Pray they become well established in the faith, trusting Christ fully and following him faithfully.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Lhop community will be prepared to enter the 21st century, educating their children and with skills to make them employable.
