Nisu, Jianshui in China

The Jianshui Nisu have been a dominant group in southern Yunnan for many centuries. They worship numerous spirits, some of whom are considered benevolent and others evil. The first missionaries in Jianshui arrived in 1933 and stayed for two years, and today there are a small number of Nisu Christians in Gaoda District.

Ministry Obstacles

Spirit worship must be overcome and replaced by worship of the living God.

Outreach Ideas

Han Chinese believers may be able to help disciple the Jianshui Nisu believers, giving them a vision to reach the remainder of their people group.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the believers among the Jianshui Nisu, that they would be properly taught in the faith, making the most of every opportunity, understanding what the Lord's will is.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for the Holy Spirit to give the Jianshui Nisu people love for God's Word and a desire to spread its influence. Pray that all of the Jianshui Nisu will increasingly desire to learn of Jesus, his life and finished work on the cross.
