Romam of Vietnam

Introduction / History
The Romam of Vietnam speak a Mon Khmer language and Vietnamese. They have lived together for a long time and now live in one village. Many work in cultivation. They also work in cotton planting and weaving. Sticky rice is a favorite food for them. They fish too.

The Romam live in stilt houses. There are many kitchens in the houses. They carry their goods by basket using shoulder straps. They have wedding and engagement ceremonies. Divorce is not common among them. Women can have babies in their own homes but strangers are not allowed to come in. Drums are played to let the others among them know if there is bereavement.

The Romam are animists. They worship the dead as they believe this causes a better life for them. They also worship the Rice spirit who they hope will give them a better harvest. They like love songs and folk songs and stories told by elders. This may be an opportunity to give the gospel in song form and also in story form.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the Romam will turn from worshipping dead spirits and false gods and turn to Jesus Christ instead.
* Pray that Vietnamese Christians will lead the Romam to salvation too.
