Prior to 1949 the Xiaoliangshan Nosu practiced a system of slavery. "Even today, Xiaoliangshan Nosu society is a very complex system of castes, tribes and clans. In 1957 80% of the Nuo were slave owners. The remnants of these class tensions are still an undercurrent in Nosu society today." There are only a few Xiaoliangshan Nosu believers scattered over a widespread area.
These people may have little background needed to understand the Gospel message.
Pray that Han Chinese believers will be motivated to build relationships with the Nosu, to befriend them and carry the Gospel to them.
Pray for the Xiaoliangshan Nosu believers to find each other and fellowship together. Pray they overcome any sense of class consciousness or inferiority. Pray they live a life of love, just as Christ loved them and gave himself up for them.
Pray for the Lord to multiply the reception and influence of His Word among the Xiaoliangshan Nosu people, leading them to love Him with their whole being. Pray for them to increasingly be made aware of who the creator God truly is, and what He has done to provide forgiveness and an abundant life.
