Long Neck Woman Receives Long Life

Long Neck Village Outreach

Pu Li with her daughters

Pu Li is a beautiful woman. One of her most beautiful features is not one that is widely recognized as beautiful in the West. In her tribe, having an elongated neck is considered beautiful. 
The Long Neck tribe in Thailand come from Myanmar. They are refugees because of the civil war in their homeland. Thailand has not given them official refugee status but allows them to remain. Pu Li's only way to make a living is by selling handicrafts to tourists who have come to see her and her people’s long necks. 

During the pandemic Pu Li had no tourists come to her village. As a matter of fact, they didn’t come for 2 ½ years. No governmental help was available to them as unofficial refugees. Pu Li and her daughters were starving.

You, the donors of His Feet International, helped feed their hungry stomachs through providing them with food and relief since the onset of the pandemic. Your kindness to her made her ripe for the Gospel. She had been reading a Bible we had given her previously. Just last week, we were in her village and Pu Li gave her life to Jesus. His Feet donors Chuck & Lisa Fields and Bryan & Lara Burns prayed with her. Pu Li received the promise of eternal life. Now her long neck brings people in to tell them about long life. 

There are about 150 people in her village. I had the privilege of preaching the Gospel to them. Several of them decided to follow Jesus, joining those that have believed previously since this outreach began in 2020.
Pray for Pu Li and the other believers in her village to grow in discipleship and go on to make disciples all across their once unreached tribe of nearly 200,000 people. Thailand is less than 1% Christian. His Feet International is working to change that.

Even now, the tourists are just trickling back in. Tourism is recovering very slowly in Thailand. For this reason we’ve committed to help them this year too.

I had the privilege of preaching the Gospel to the Long Neck. Several people prayed the prayer. Pray that they follow Jesus as we provide discipleship to them.

His Feet International works to reached unreached people. Your prayers and financial support are not just appreciated they are crucial. Together we are making a difference in people and places where no other ministries are working.
