Prayer Points

* Pray that the Kumandins will know the power of the One True God over the spirits and that they will accept the salvation they can have by faith in Christ.
* Pray that God will saturate these people with His Word, His truth and His guidance, so they will no longer be in bondage to the emptiness of spirit worship and shamanism.
* Pray that God will save Kumandin leaders who will share the love of Jesus with their own people.
* Ask the Lord to bring forth a triumphant Kumandin church for the glory of His name, and through the church preserve the Kumandin people.
* Ask the Holy Spirit to soften the hearts of the Kumandin so that they will be receptive to the Gospel.
