What Are Their Lives Like?

There is little information about the Sere people, but they are probably farmers.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Sere people practice their own ethnic religion. Their practices force them to serve spirits that can harm them. For this reason, they bargain with the spirits for favors and blessings. This situation does not allow for full adherence to the God who gave them life and promises life to the full.


What Are Their Needs?

The Sere people need bold hearts, ready to seek and find a relationship with Jesus Christ, King of kings.


Prayer Points

Pray that the Sere people will have a spiritual hunger that will open their hearts to the King of kings. Pray for the Lord to thrust out workers to the Sere people. Pray for workers who are driven by the love and boldness of the Holy Spirit to go to them. Pray for a movement to Christ among them to begin this decade.
