The Kim Mun believe that when bad people die they go to a terrible place, their perception of hell - a thick, dark forest with no villages or clearings. It is believed that good people will go to one of several levels of heaven, depending on how much care their eldest son gives the spirit of his dead parent. The Kim Mun worship their ancestors by sacrificing pigs three times each year to honor them.

Ministry Obstacles

Scripture is not available in the language of the Kim Mun, although Gospel recordings are available. Pray for workers.

Outreach Ideas

Some of the more heavily Christianized groups in Vietnam, such as the Roglai, may be able to take the Gospel message to the Kim Mun. Pray for rapidly expanding movements of the Gospel message.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are a few believers among the Kim Mun. Pray they will become well grounded in the faith, sure of their relationship with Christ, growing in righteousness.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for Kim Mun families and neighborhoods to discover and embrace the free gift of life found by trusting Christ and his finished work. Pray these animistic people will increasingly hunger to know forgiveness for their sins.
