Monba, Cona of China
The Monba, or Tsangla, are outwardly Tibetan Buddhists, but the majority continue to practice shamanistic and polytheistic rituals. Many rural people practice "river burial," by which a corpse is cut into 108 pieces and hurled into a rushing river. The Monba believe that all disease is caused by demons. They feel they are forced to sacrifice their valuable cattle and horses to pacify the angry demons. They also believe humans can be demons who cause sickness.
With government policies of isolation, China does not provide easy access for Christian workers.
Perhaps Christians from Nepal and India will be given a burden to carry the good news of Christ to the Monba of China.
Pray for the followers of Christ
Please pray for the few followers of Jesus among this large Buddhist group, that they will be drawn to fellowship together, and will be firmly established upon the truth of Scripture.
Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Monba community will increasingly become aware of their need for forgiveness of sin, and that provision for that forgiveness has been provided in the person and work of Christ.
