Introduction / History

Tai Thanh speakers live in a region with very small tribes. Tai Thanh is more of a language than a people group.


Where Are they Located?

The Tai Thanh people live only in the northern provinces of Vietnam near the border with Laos.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Like the other peoples in this region, those who speak Tai Thanh earn their living by growing rice, vegetables, and raising livestock.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Tai Thanh speakers have their own tribal, animistic religion. Such religions involve keeping the peace with the spirit world through offerings. One can be in good standing with the spirits and have good fortune, but if one doesn't give them what they want, one can face grave misfortune for their family members, crops, etc.


What Are Their Needs?

Tai Thanh speakers need Christian resources like gospel recordings, the JESUS Film, and the Scriptures in their language.


Prayer Points

* Ask for the Lord of the Harvest to send workers into this field to tell the Tai Thanh speakers that they have been specially created for a unique purpose: to know, love and worship Jesus Christ.
* Pray for the Lord to penetrate the lives of the Tai Thanh speakers through dreams and visions.
* Pray for their elders to open the door for ministry.
* Pray for a strong discipling ministry that will transform Tai Thanh speaking communities in Vietnam into His likeness.
