Introduction / History

Laghuu is a language more than a people group.

Where Are they Located?

Laghuu speakers live in the grasslands, mountains and valleys of northern Vietnam near the Chinese border.

What Are Their Lives Like?

Those who speak Laghuu sell handicrafts, hunt and farm for a living.

What Are Their Beliefs?

Laghuu speakers have their own animistic beliefs which put them at the mercy of the spirit world. They must appease the spirits in order to prosper. If they do not appease the spirits, they will be punished, often by misfortunes.

What Are Their Needs?

There are very few people who speak this language, so they need to adapt to the Vietnamese language.

Prayer Points

* Pray for openness to the person of Jesus as Lord of their lives.
* Pray for Laghuu leaders to be open to allowing their people to embrace the Savior.
* Pray for there to soon be worship songs and skits in the Laghuu language.
