Minyak in China

Unreached of the Day  1/24/2018

Minyak in China

The Minyak are part of the Tibetan nationality. They have been described as a "peaceful, sedentary Tibetan tribe, a most inoffensive, obliging, happy-go-lucky people." They live quiet lives in nearly complete isolation from the rest of the world. Almost all Minyak adhere to Tibetan Buddhism. They observe Tibetan festivals and make pilgrimages to Tibetan holy sites.

Ministry Obstacles

The Minyak may fear disturbing community harmony, and desire peace more than truth.

Outreach Ideas

Workers are needed to carry the Gospel message to the Minyak community. Perhaps Han Chinese believers will shoulder the task.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for followers of Christ to soon develop within the Minyak community, that the Lord even now is preparing pastors and teachers for them. Pray for Christian resources to be available to them, as well.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for the light of the Gospel of Christ to shine in the Minyak community.

Scripture Focus

"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, 'Your God reigns!'" Isaiah 52:7
