China and Laos: China has its own "Banana Basket" Pray for Laos

The Northern portion of Laos where the Lahu Aga live has become the "banana basket" for China, just as central America is positioned close to the USA.

Most of the economy at present centers around numerous banana plantations and other than their own highland fields, it is on these plantations that most of the Lahu Aga find work, people in one of the many local tribes.

At present there is no official schooling in Lahu Aga villages.

They have individuals who come in to teach from time to time, but no regular program.  They are hoping to have the first official school in a Lahu Aga village open up sometime next year.

That gives a small inkling of the amount of work that needs to be done in this part of Laos.

Pray for the people of Laos. People who become Christians usually have to spend one year in prison for going against the beliefs of the government. Training for Christian leaders is next to impossible, unless the person goes to another country for a short period of time.
