The Southern Nasu probably originated in southern Sichuan and northern Yunnan many centuries ago. The name Nasu means "black people." The color black is revered by the Nasu. They are polytheists who attempt to placate a wide array of spirits and deities. Some spirits are considered helpful while others are evil and cause death, sickness, and destruction.
Today most Southern Nasu have no knowledge of Christianity. Much is needed in the way of models of Christian behavior as well as in formal instruction.
Christians need to build bridges of friendship and trust with these people.
There may be 100 followers of Christ among this people group. Pray they will be adequately instructed in the faith, and will increasingly trust Christ for their lives, as well as for their salvation.
Pray these people will be rescued from the control of evil forces, and will find full freedom in Christ.
"Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance, and the very ends of the earth as Your possession." Psalm 2:8
