Tau't Batu in Philippines
TAOW-tah bah-TOO

Tau't Batu people live in a very remote part of the Philippines which is not affected by any political activity because of their small numbers and simple ways. They trade for their needs and are accomplished at basket making. They plant, hunt and forage as a community. They enjoy music as part of their community life.

Ministry Obstacles
The Tau't people have always depended on the animistic world. It is all they know in the spiritual realm.

Outreach Ideas
Perhaps because of their late exposure to modern civilization, there is a great need for literacy and job training.

Scripture Focus
"I stretch out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Selah"  Psalm 143:6

Scripture Prayer
Pray that many from today’s people group will thirst for the Lord’s presence.

Prayer Focus
Although the population is very small, they need a Christ-centered spiritual leader and a church. The Tau't Bato people need someone who can introduce them to the Savior of mankind. Pray that Tau't Batu people would increasingly hunger to know forgiveness for their sins that only Jesus Christ can offer. Pray that audio and visual Scripture resources would become available to them. Pray that a strong, Christ-centered church would be established among them.
