Introduction / History
Haroi is a language, not a people group name. It is related to the language of the complex Cham peoples.

Where are they located?
The Haroi language is spoken in Binh Dinh and Phu Yen provinces of Vietnam.

What are their lives like?
Like other peoples of this region, the Haroi speakers are farmers who grow rice and raise livestock.

What are their beliefs?
The primary religion practiced by the Haroi people is ethnic religion. Ethnic religion is deeply rooted in a people's ethnic identity and conversion essentially equates to cultural assimilation.

What are their needs?
Gospel recordings and the JESUS Film are not yet translated into this language. It would be helpful if they at least had the Gospel of Luke translated so it could be dubbed into the JESUS Film.

Prayer Points
Pray for spiritual openness among these people.
Pray for opportunities for them to hear that Jesus Christ is Lord of all.
Pray that their leaders will be open to allowing Jesus to transform their communities.
Pray for a disciple making movement that will bless Haroi speakers in multiple ways.
* Pray for completion of Bible translation in this people group's primary language.
* Pray for the availability of the Jesus Film in the primary language of this people.
