God loves the Karens


I mean the people group, the Karens. They are mostly animist and Buddhist and live in SE Asia. Check this website out and ask the Lord if he is calling you to become part of the church's mission to the Karens:

From KarenWebsite:

The Karens, pronounced (Ka-rans), are an indigenous people to the southeast Asian countries of Thailand and Burma. Our population numbers around 14 million in that region with the majority of the Karens living inside Burma. Traditionally, most Karens are farmers who farm the nutrient rich soils of southern Burma and eastern Thailand. The religion of the Karen majority is Animism and Buddhism although there is a sizable population of Christians among the Karens. Christians constitute roughly 30% of the Karen population. Karens, unlike other large ethnic groups, are made-up of smaller subgroups who, in some cases, speak in their own dialects. There are, however, two main groups of Karens: the Sgaws(S'waw) and the Pwos. To most people who are familiar with the Karens, Karens are known for their colorful traditional clothes and for their energetic and jubilant festival dances. Foremostly, the Karens are known for their hospitality and friendliness which they readily extend to everyone.

Abu, how is it that they have almost no Christian witness if 30% of their own population are Christians?

Let me check on this (embarrassed), I must be thinking of the Karens in a certain country or region.

Have edited my comment until I can check on that.
