Another unreached people.

 They MUST hear, they MUST be discipled-or the end cannot come!
Angku in China

The Angku were originally part of a large Austro-Asiatic group that occupied much of Yunnan before the Dai and Yi people arrived. “They were driven out of their habitats by the invaders, dispersed and split into the isolated groups they are today.” Most Angku women are fond of chewing betel nut which blackens their teeth and gums. Stained teeth are considered a mark of beauty among Angku women. Since the betel juice only stains temporarily, some women use black dye to artificially stain their teeth. The Angku are staunch followers of Theravada Buddhism. Angku life revolves around the local temple.

Ministry Obstacles
The worldview of the Buddhist is quite different than the worldview of Scripture.

Outreach
Pray Han Chinese believers will be burdened to carry the Gospel of Christ to this Buddhist community.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There likely are no followers of Christ among the Angku community at present, but pray for those that will soon emerge. Pray they will be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Pray for Scripture availability.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Angku people will be made aware of their need for a Saviour and forgiveness of sin. Pray they will understand and believe that Jesus is that Saviour.

Scripture Focus
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.” Psalm 33:12
