Daur in China

Unreached of the Day  1/03/2021

Daur in China

The Daur people possibly are descended from a group named "Those Who Hunt Foxes." They live in clans and speak Daur (somewhat similar to Mongolian) and Chinese. There used to be as many as 300,000 Daur, but their numbers have dwindled as a result of disease and assimilation into other people groups.

Ministry Obstacles

Daur people hold their shamans in high esteem; they consult their shamans for any important decision. They are also Buddhist. There are many other spiritual strongholds.

Outreach Ideas

There are many strong believers in other parts of China that can reach the Daur people by relocating.

Scripture Focus

"And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."  Genesis 12:2-3

Scripture Prayer

Pray for many leaders in today’s people group to seek and find God’s blessings, which He intended to give to them since the beginning of time.

Prayer Focus

In the 1990s, the Daur were shown the JESUS Film, and more than 1,000 put their faith in Christ. They stood firm in persecution. There are portions of the Bible in Daur. Pray for Daur believers to be passionately involved in evangelism and to have a deep burden to see a movement to Christ among their people.
