Mozhihei in China

Unreached of the Day  1/14/2021

Mozhihei in China

When does one become two? The Mozhihei are one of two Tujia peoples, who have their roots in a migration that happened between 1,800 and 2,200 years ago. Today they grow a wide variety of crops, and are also quite proficient in hunting, trapping, and fishing. Those who live in urban areas tend to be atheistic while all others hold to religious practices involving a combination of shamanism, Daoism, ancestral worship, and ancient spiritual beliefs.

Ministry Obstacles

Perhaps the greatest obstacle standing between the Mozhihei and Christ is that few believers have ever gone to their home in the Hunan Mountains. Pray for more workers in the fields!

Outreach Ideas

The Mozhihei have a beautiful cultural repertoire of traditional songs and dances, suggesting they value these mediums. Song and dance might be the best avenue to present the gospel. Pray for creativity in reaching the Mozhihei people!

Scripture Focus

"May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace."  Numbers 6:24-26

Scripture Prayer

Pray this blessing on today’s people group.

Prayer Focus

Pray that they would hear of Christ and that their hearts would be moved to pursue Him as a group. Pray for a people movement to Christ.
