Talieng in Laos

Talieng in Laos

Talieng means "headhunters," and they are concentrated in remote mountainous areas near Laos’ border with Vietnam. Many remain in extremely isolated communities, around 5,000 feet above sea-level, and they have little or no interaction with other groups. They still retain their own customs and traditional dress. Talieng people in Laos construct houses for the spirits and deities they believe can protect and bless them.

Ministry Obstacles

There are a number of Talieng Christians in Vietnam, but the massive mountains and political restrictions between Vietnam and Laos have prevented the gospel from spreading across the border.

Outreach Ideas

The Talieng need the abundant life that only comes from a relationship with Jesus Christ. Disciples of the Lord Jesus who know how to communicate the truth of the gospel can go, serve and share.

Scripture Focus

"You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability."  2 Peter 3:17

Scripture Prayer

Pray that the Lord protects the believers in today’s people group from false teachers and false teaching.

Prayer Focus

Pray the Talieng people, especially those in remote areas, would hear and respond to the abundant grace of Jesus. Pray there would soon be a strong church planting movement among the Talieng of Laos. Wrestle in prayer against the powerful spirits and witchcraft keeping the Talieng in spiritual chains.
