Kyakala in China
pronounced: key-ah-KAH-lah

Assimilation occurs when members of minority groups have absorbed the characteristics of the dominant group and become indistinguishable from them. The Kyakala are the remnant of a people whose assimilation into surrounding nationalities was hastened by the large populations of their neighbors. The Kyakala were initially consumed into the Manchu nationality, which in turn has largely been swallowed up by the Han Chinese.

Ministry Obstacles: The Kyakala were once dominated by shamanism. Today they are nonreligious, although many elderly Kyakala retain ancestor worship practices in their homes. Their hearts are set on things below, not things above.

Outreach Ideas: The Kyakala may now best be reached by using the Chinese Scriptures. They can easily obtain these.

Scripture Focus: "And all the people gathered as one man into the square before the Water Gate. And they told Ezra the scribe to bring the Book of the Law of Moses that the LORD had commanded Israel."
- Nehemiah 8:1

Prayer Focus Pray for an eagerness to hear and heed God’s word among this people group. There are some Christians among the Kyakala who can share the spiritual blessings of Christ with their families. Pray for the spiritual blindness and bondage to the evil one to be removed, so they can understand and respond to Christ. Pray for the Lord to provide for their physical and spiritual needs as a testimony of his power and love. Pray the Kyakala people would have a spiritual hunger that will open their hearts to the King of kings. Pray for an unstoppable movement to Christ among them.
