Han Chinese, Waxiang in China

Han Chinese, Waxiang in China

pronounced: wa-shee-UNG

The Waxiang live scattered throughout the beautiful Hunan Province. Though they are a mixture of several ethnic groups, officially the Waxiang are considered to be part of the majority Han Chinese Nationality.

Ministry Obstacles

This people group believes in ghosts and spirits. Many are also Daoists. Pray for the Holy Spirit to move in their communities.

Outreach Ideas

The Waxiang Han Chinese take pride in their unique language which is related to the Miao cluster of languages. Perhaps there is an open door for linguists who know Christ to establish a beach head among them and translate for them.

Scripture Focus

You must serve only the Lord your God. If you do, I will bless you with food and water, and I will protect you from illness. There will be no miscarriages or infertility in your land, and I will give you long, full lives. Ex 23:25-26

Scripture Prayer

Pray that many from this people group will serve the Lord and receive His abundant blessings.

Prayer Focus

As far as we know there are 500 followers of Christ among the Waxiang Han Chinese, but they are too scattered to form their own fellowship. Pray that the few Waxiang believers will be empowered by the Holy Spirit to take Christ to every Waxiang community. Pray that they will develop a hunger for the true Savior, Jesus Christ. Pray for an unstoppable movement to Christ among them.
