Ersu in China

Unreached of the Day  7/29/2018

Ersu in China

The Ersu believe they will be reincarnated when they die and will come back to the earth as a person in a higher social position if they have lived a virtuous life. They will come back as an animal if they lived a wicked life. This belief results in the Ersu having little motivation to help the afflicted among them, as suffering is considered the consequence of a person's bad karma. The Ersu are officially part of the Tibetan nationality.

Ministry Obstacles

The Ersu may fear disturbing community harmony if they become followers of Christ.

Outreach Ideas

Christian workers need to build good relationships with the Ersu community, earning the right to share the Good News about Christ.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There may be no followers of Christ among the Ersu at present, but pray for those that will soon come to faith. Pray they will be zealous to know and serve the Lord, and will be properly instructed in the faith.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Ersu community will increasingly become aware of their need for a savior, and that many will be given faith to believe in Jesus and his finished work on the cross.
