DRC/Congo (MNN) — In a world where technology is always improving, values seem to shift, and the latest craze will be forgotten tomorrow, it’s hard to grasp the fact that many people around the world are living life much like they did a hundred years ago.

Often these isolated people groups change much more slowly. Some are even resistant to change, and that can include religion. Greg Kelley of World Mission recently sent us a report from the field about a tribe living in The Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Congo. The Gospel has not yet reached this group.

He shares more about it and how you can be praying: “I’m looking out over the forests of the Democratic Republic of Congo and even across the river into the Republic of Congo, where the last remaining unreached people group in both of these great nations lives: it’s the Pygmy people. World Mission has two teams–one is on sight right now among the Pygmies in the northern part of the DRC, and another one leaves next week for the Republic of Congo. They will be distributing Treasures in the native tongue of the Pygmy people who have largely rejected the Gospel, and they largely have been overlooked; there’s not been mission activity. But we have two teams that are going out, and they’ll be targeting these precious people that Jesus died for. So we just would encourage you to be praying for the Pygmies of the Republic of Congo and the Democratic Republic of Congo that they would open their hearts to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.”
