Laha in Vietnam

The La Ha house is built on stilts with two entrances and ladders at both ends. Many villages cultivate rice in submerged fields and build embankments to protect the soil from erosion. The La Ha grow cotton but do not weave. They believe there are many supernatural forces including spirits of the forest, the water, the mist, and the house. Old customs require that a dead person be buried with their money. In each family, only the soul of the father, which will turn into the spirit of the house after his death, is worshipped. Every year, when the ban flowers blossom, a celebration is held by every family to honour their parents.

Ministry Obstacles

Christian work in Vietnam is restricted, especially in rural areas, and Christian resources appropriate for these people are few in number.

Outreach Ideas

Workers can contact the few Christians among the Laha, offering instruction in what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. Being a disciple includes sharing what people know with family and friends, others in the Laha people group.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for the very few followers of Jesus among the Laha people, that they will fellowship together, and be instructed by the Spirit of the Lord. Pray they will be given a heart to share their belief in Christ with family and friends.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Laha people will be able to adequately provide for their families, with sufficient food, housing, and medical care.

Scripture Focus

"Now go out to the street corners and invite everyone you see." Matthew 22:9

Laha in Vietnam

La casa de La Ha está construida sobre pilotes con dos entradas y escaleras en ambos extremos. Muchas aldeas cultivan arroz en campos sumergidos y construyen muros de contención para proteger el suelo de la erosión. Los La Ha siembran algodón, pero no lo hacen para tejer.

Ellos creen que hay muchas fuerzas sobrenaturales como espíritus de los bosques,d el agua, la niebla, y la casa. Costumbres antiguas exigen que un muerto sea enterrado con su dinero. En cada familia, sólo el alma del padre, quién se convertirá en el espíritu de la casa después de su muerte, es adorado. Cada año, cuando florecen las flores de Ban, cada familia lleva a cabo una celebración para honrar a sus padres.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

La obra cristiana en Vietnam es restringida, especialmente en zonas rurales, y los recursos cristianos apropiados para estas personas son pocas.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Trabajadores pueden contactar los pocos cristianos entre los La Ha, por medio de ofrecerles instrucción acerca de lo que significa ser un discípulo de Jesús. Ser un discípulo incluye compartir lo que la gente sabe con familiares y amigos, otros en el grupo La Ha.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Ore por los pocos seguidores de Jesús entre el pueblo La Ha, que tengan comunión entre ellos, y para que sean instruidos por el Espíritu del Señor. Ore para que se les de un corazón para compartir su fe en Cristo con la familia y amigos.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore por el pueblo La Ha, para que puedan proveer adecuadamente a sus familias, con alimentos suficientes, con vivienda y médicos.

Texto Bíblico

"Id, pues, a las salidas de los caminos, y llamad a las bodas a cuantos halléis." Mateo 22:9

Laha in 베트남

La Ha 사람들의 가옥은 나무기둥 위에 지으며 양쪽 끝에 사다리가 달린 입구가 한개씩 있습니다. 많은 마을에서는 쌀농사를 논에서 짓는데, 흙의 침식을 막기 위해 제방을 쌓습니다. La Ha 사람들은 목화를 재배는 하지만 (실을) 짜지는 않습니다. 이들은 숲, 물, 안개, 집의 정령들같은 초자연적인 세력이 많다고 믿습니다. 이들의 오래된 관습으로 죽은 자를 묻을 때 돈을 같이 묻는다고 합니다. 각 가족마다 오직 아버지의 혼이 사망 이후에 집의 정령으로 바뀌게 된다고 믿는데, 이들은 이 정령을 숭배합니다. 매년 ban꽃이 개화할때에 축제가 열리며 각 가족은 그들의 부모에게 존경을 표시합니다.

선교 장애 요인

베트남의 기독교 사역은 제한되어 있으며 특별히 시골지역에서 그렇습니다. 이 사람들이 사용할 수 있는 기독교 자료의 숫자는 적습니다.

전도 방법 제안

Laha 종족 가운데 있는 소수의 그리스도인들과 사역자들이 만날 수 있을 것이며 예수님의 제자가 되는 가르침을 제공할 수 있을 것입니다. 제자가 된다는 것은 가족과 친구, Laha 종족의 다른 이들에게 자신이 아는 것을 나누는 것을 뜻합니다.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

Laha 사람들 가운데 있는 예수님을 따르는 극소수의 사람들을 위해 기도하여, 이들이 서로 교제할 수 있고 주님의 영으로 가르침을 받게 되도록 기도해 주십시오. 가족과 친구들에게 그리스도 안에서의 믿음을 나눌 수 있는 마음을 주시도록 기도해 주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

Laha 사람들이 가족들에게 충분한 음식, 가옥, 보건 진료 등을 적절히 공급할 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오.

성경 말씀

그러니 너희는 네 거리로 나가서, 아무나, 만나는 대로 잔치에 청해 오너라. 마태복음 22:9
