Ministry Obstacles

They follow a traditional religion called Ahl-E-Haqq and Shia Islam.

Outreach Ideas

Simple things grow, simple things multiply. Pray for a simple church and small groups to be a hallmark of the Holy Spirit's work to maximize fruitfulness among these people who do not presently have God's truth.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are no known followers of Christ among the Lak people in Iran.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray that the Holy Spirit will raise up many prayer teams to pray for the Lak people until the blessing of knowing Jesus is spreading rapidly in this remote region from family to family.
