The San Diu People

The 146,000 San Diu people living in the northern part of Vietnam are unreached. They worship their ancestors and are also animists who worship a myriad of deities and spirits, holding annual rituals to pray for abundant blessings over their planting and harvesting. The San Diu have rich traditional folksongs and possess a unique treasury of stories in verses.

A prayer for the San Diu people:

Heavenly Father, we pray for the unreached San Diu people of northern Vietnam. Your word promises that people from every tribe, nation, and language will one day worship around your throne in heaven. Lord we believe this and we know that this also includes the San Diu people. Father please send them your word in their own language. Please send Christians to them to tell them about Jesus. Thank you for the small number of San Diu Christians! Lord please grow them in their faith and give them boldness to reach out to their neighbors with the gospel. May many San Diu people hear the gospel and be drawn to you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.


Throughout the month of May 2015, we are asking individuals, families, groups of friends, small groups, and churches to join with us and commit to pray for the peoples of Vietnam. We will be posting stories and sharing ways to pray daily through the blog, Facebook, and Twitter. You can also download a prayer guide and other resources here.
