Ho in Bangladesh

Ho in Bangladesh

The Ho are known for their independent nature, which has historically separated them from the rule of powerful Hindus. The tribe's culture is intertwined with the natural world. They are most comfortable in the forest environment that supplies many of their necessities. Their major agricultural crop is rice, which they ferment to make beer.

Ministry Obstacles

The New Testament is printed in the Ho language and some mission agencies work among them. Mission efforts have led to a small community of Christ followers, but there is a need for more outreach.

Outreach Ideas

Utilizing the availability of the New Testament and the already existing connections with the Ho will help to reach them. Prayer will also be an important tool.

Scripture Focus

"Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble"  Psalm 107:2

Scripture Prayer

Pray for this people group to call out to the Lord to redeem them from sin, their main enemy.

Prayer Focus

Pray that the church would thrive and that they would spread the word to their neighbors. Pray that all conflict within the church would be resolved peacefully, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Pray for the Ho people to be able to make their own spiritual decisions, free from outside pressures. Pray for a disciple making movement for the Ho people. Pray for their physical needs to be met by the Lord, leading them to put their faith in him alone.
