Tai Lue in Laos

Laos is a small, land-locked nation in Southeast Asia. The Tai Lue people of Laos live in the northern part of the country near the Chinese border. The Tai Lue dwell in villages near rivers. Most Tai Lue make their living growing and selling wet rice and other crops. Other Tai Lue fish and make jewelry from silver. Their women are expert weavers and embroiderers.

Ministry Obstacles

The region where the Tai Lue live in Laos is isolated. Foreign missionaries are not allowed to enter the area.

Outreach Ideas

The JESUS Film and God's Story video are both available in the Lu language. The Tai Lue are primarily an oral culture, so these would be good resources for them.

Scripture Focus

"They read from the book, from the Law of God, clearly, and they gave the sense, so that the people understood the reading."  Nehemiah 8:8

Scripture Prayer

Pray for this people group to understand God’s word when they hear it.

Prayer Focus

Pray that the tiny numbers of believers among the Tai Lue would be strengthened in the faith and share the good news with their families and neighbors. Ask the Holy Spirit to soften the hearts of the Tai Lue so that they will be receptive to the gospel. Pray that the gospel would spread rapidly throughout the Tai Lue people and that Christ would be glorified.
