Introduction / History

The Tho of Vietnam are from migrant groups of that country. They speak a Viet-Muong language but they usually can speak Vietnamese. They use modern day writing. The Tho work in agriculture and fish and hunt to get a living. They eat rice.

The Tho live mainly in large villages in the west parts of Nghe An Province. Their houses are built on stilts though many are now having their houses on the ground. They carry small items in baskets while oxen carry larger objects.

The Tho have a village chief who looks after community matters and tax collection. They marry mainly among themselves rather than between their community and other communities. Upon the birth of a baby, the midwife gives the baby a name. No stranger is allowed in the home until a month after the birth. They worship those among them who have just died as well as their ancestors, spirits and Buddha.

The Tho like to dance and play chess. The Chinese New Year is the main holiday among them. They have used the lunar calendar though the Western one is now being used.


Prayer Points

* Pray that the village chiefs will come to Salvation and lead others of the Tho to Jesus Christ,
* Pray for complete freedom for the gospel message to be given in Vietnam.
