Praying for the Pangkhua People

There are still 1,800 language groups-about 180 million people-who don't possess Scripture in their own language.

One of these groups is the Pangkhua language in Bangladesh, which has several names, including Pangkhu, Pankho, Panko, and Pankhu. Say all those ten times fast! This language is part of the Sino-Tibetan, Tibeto-Burman language family.

Speakers of Pangkua live in the Rangamati district of Bangladesh and also in parts of India. The people use Bengali in education and use the Devangari script and Latin script when they write.

The main religion for these people is Christian, but how can they grow in their knowledge of the Lord without His word? There is a possible need for Bible translation in this language group.

*Please pray that language surveyors can sufficiently research and assess the needs of for Bible translation in this group of people.
