Lap, Lakha in Bhutan

This group is called Lap ('inhabitants of the mountain passes'), or Lakhapa ('people who speak the Lakha language'). They inhabit central areas of the Himalayan Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan. Tibetan Buddhism is the state religion of Bhutan, and all Lap families follow it. On a local level, spirit appeasement still holds great influence in the people's daily lives. Many 'believe that, when they appear for judgment in the period between death and rebirth, a chicken will put white pebbles onto a scale to represent their good deeds, while a pig shovels on black pebbles to signify evil one has done....In this perilous time after death, pious Buddhists believe, one's spirit can influence its emergence into a higher life or bring on the disaster of rebirth on a lower plane.' There are no known Christians among the Lap people of Bhutan.

Ministry Obstacles

Much spiritual darkness has prevailed in the mountains and valleys of Bhutan for generations.

Outreach Ideas

Being oral communicators, it is necessary to make audio recordings of the Gospel message for them in their own language.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Please pray the Lord will begin to stir the hearts of the Lap people to find forgiveness for their sin, and that God will reveal Jesus as Savior to them when the time is right.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Lap will see the importance of providing a good education for their children. Pray the government of Bhutan will be able to provide good quality schools for the entire country.

Scripture Focus

"Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; and let them say among the nations, 'The Lord reigns.'" 1 Chronicles 16:31
