In 1799 the Kucong people experienced a major military defeat and began to collapse as a tribe. This defeat caused them to flee into the mountains, and from that point on they fragmented as a people and many died.
Kucong is a language of Vietnam, but most of the Kucong people live in China.
The Kucong have lived in dire poverty for generations. The Kucong have been hated and oppressed by all other Lahu peoples.
They are primarily Theravada Buddhists, in contrast to the majority of Lahu peoples who are either animists or Christians.
There is no scripture reported available in the Kucong language, or other resources such as gospel recordings.
Please pray for believers remaining from past mission efforts to bear new fruit.
Pray for the Kucong people to desire spiritual truth and find it in Jesus Christ.
Pray for a movement to Christ among the Kucong people in Vietnam.
Pray for improved living conditions for these oppressed people, in both China and Vietnam.
Pray for friendly relations with neighboring peoples, and for better employment and educational opportunities.
