Most Hmong Njua occupy the middle class in French Guiana. They own small businesses and restaurants. They work as teachers and as middle level administrators for the government. The Hmong, as a small minority, try to keep a low profile. They tend to marry within their group. The Hmong try to maintain their Southeast Asian language and culture. Some Hmong have been in Guiana for generations and consider themselves more French than Hmong. The Hmong practice monogamy or one wife for each husband. Parents encourage their children to graduate from universities and enter the professions.
They are susceptible to being deceived by strong influential figures. One of their legends tells of a Hmong savior who will come and lead them into their own land where they will be left alone in peace.
Some Njua Hmong will listen to the truth while others will listen to deceivers. Getting them the word of God and praying they will make good decisions is the best approach.
Pray that the Hmong people will have a spiritual hunger that will open their hearts to the King of kings.
Pray for workers who will share the good news and tell the Hmong how to follow the Lord.
Pray for a movement to Christ among all the Hmong Njua to begin this decade.
