Katang in Laos

The Katang are dispersed over a widespread area of southern Laos. In some of the more remote locations, the Katang live in houses made of braided leaves. In recent decades, however, many Katang have moved down from the hills onto the plains, where they have lost much of their cultural heritage and are on the way to assimilation into Lao culture and language. Although most Katang have absolutely no awareness of the Gospel or the claims of Jesus Christ, there is one Katang church in Laos, with approximately 100 known believers. They have faced great opposition from local authorities, shamans, and community leaders, who believe the presence of the Christians will bring a curse on the village from the spirits they have worshipped for countless generations. Most Katang are too bound by fear to consider converting to Christianity.

Ministry Obstacles

Fear of change and fear of spirits form formidable obstacles to the Gospel.

Outreach Ideas

Perhaps the Lord will lead people who know how to tell stories from scripture to the Katang tribe. Pray for prepared hearts among the Katang.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Please pray for the Katang church, that the people will be fully delivered from their past history of folk beliefs and the worship of created things.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Katang tribe will understand the importance of providing a good education for their children, and will be able to provide that education.

Scripture Focus

"Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, Who alone works wonders. And blessed be His glorious name forever; And may the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen, and Amen." Psalm 72:18-19

Katang in Laos

Los katang se dispersan sobre un área extensa del sur de Laos. En algunos de los lugares más remotos, los katang viven en casas hechas de hojas trenzadas. En las últimas décadas, sin embargo, muchos de los katang se han trasladado desde las montañas a las llanuras, donde han perdido gran parte de su patrimonio cultural y que están en el proceso de asimilación a la cultura y el idioma lao. Aunque la mayoría de los katang no tienen ningún conocimiento del Evangelio o de Jesucristo, hay una iglesia katang en Laos, con aproximadamente 100 creyentes conocidos. Ellos han enfrentado gran oposición de parte de las autoridades locales, chamanes y líderes comunitarios, quienes creen que la presencia de los cristianos traerá una maldición sobre la aldea de parte de los espíritus que han adorado durante incontables generaciones. La mayoría de los katang está demasiada atada por miedo a considerar la conversión al cristianismo.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

El miedo al cambio y el miedo de los espíritus forman obstáculos formidables para el Evangelio.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Tal vez el Señor conducirá a personas que saben cómo contar historias de las Escrituras a los katang. Ore por corazones preparados entre los katang.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Por favor, ore por la iglesia katang, que la gente sea completamente liberada de su pasado de superstición y la adoración de cosas creadas.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore que los katang entiendan la importancia de proporcionar una buena educación para sus hijos, y que sean capaces de proporcionarla.

Texto Bíblico

"Bendito Jehová Dios, el Dios de Israel, El único que hace maravillas. Bendito su nombre glorioso para siempre, Y toda la tierra sea llena de su gloria. Amén y Amén." Salmos 72:18-19

Katang in 라오스

Katang민족은 라오스 남부지역에 넓게 분포하고 있습니다. 좀더 먼 지역에 거주하는 Katang 민족 사람들은 나뭇잎들을 엮어서 만든 집에 삽니다. 하지만 최근 몇 십년간 많은 Katang민족 사람들이 언덕지역에서 평지로 이동하고 있는데, 그곳에서 이들은 자신들만의 문화유산들을 잃고 라오인들(Lao)의 문화와 언어에 동화되고 있습니다. 비록 대부분의 Katang 민족 사람들은 복음과 예수그리스도에 관한 이야기를 들어본 적이 거의 없지만, 라오스에는 하나의 Katang 민족 교회가 있으며 약 100여명의 신자들이 있습니다. 이들은 지역 당국이나 무당들 그리고 지역사회 리더들로부터의 방해에 부딪히고 있는데, 그들이 셀수없는 세월동안 섬겨온 정령들로부터 저주를 받게 되는 이유가 바로 그리스도인들이 마을에 있기 때문이라고 믿습니다. 대부분의 Katang민족 사람들은 기독교로 개종하는데에 있어서 지나친 두려움을 가지고 있습니다.

선교 장애 요인

변화에 대한 두려움과 귀신들에 대한 두려움이 복음을 전하는데 있어서 많은 어려움을 만들고 있습니다.

전도 방법 제안

아마도 말씀 속에 있는 이야기들을 어떻게 하면 Katang민족에게 전할지 아는 사람들을 주님께서 인도해 주실 것입니다. Katang 민족 내에서 (복음에) 준비된 마음을 위해 기도해 주십시오.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

사람들이 과거의 미신적 관습과 피조물들을 예배하는 것으로부터 완전히 벗어날 수 있도록, Katang 교회를 위해 기도해 주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

Katang 부족이 좋은 교육을 이들의 자녀들에게 제공하는 것의 중요성을 이해하고, 좋은 교육을 제공할 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오.

성경 말씀

"홀로 기사를 행하시는 여호와 하나님 곧 이스라엘의 하나님을 찬송하며 그 영화로운 이름을 영원히 찬송할찌어다 온 땅에 그 영광이 충만할찌어다 아멘 아멘. 이새의 아들 다윗의 기도가 필하다" 시편 72:19-19
