A handful of Mang heard the good news over a decade ago and believed. Today, there are still just fewer than 20 known followers of Christ among the Mang. Most Mang people practice ancestor worship and animism, following the traditions of their people handed down through generations. Pray for the Mang believers to multiply and for the Mang to be a people group that glorifies God.
