Aoka in China

Aoka in China

Some Aoka believe there was once a ladder connecting heaven to the earth. A long time ago the ladder was broken and no people have been able to visit heaven since. Today the majority of Aoka are animists, living under the influence of demons and evil spirits. After centuries of living beside the all-powerful Han Chinese, the Aoka have lost their language and are being speedily assimilated into the Han Chinese language and culture.

Ministry Obstacles

The long-established religious beliefs of the Aoka are an obstacle, but not an insurmountable obstacle.

Outreach Ideas

The animistic beliefs of the Aoka can be a bridge for belief in the creator God.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There are followers of Christ among the Aoka community. Pray they will be adequately taught the truths of Scripture, and grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Pray for unity, around truth.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Aoka people will understand that Jesus desires to bless their families and communities, not harm them. Pray the Aoka community will be able to retain their cultural heritage, and live harmoniously with their neighbors.

Scripture Focus

"He will have compassion on the poor and needy, And the lives of the needy He will save." Psalm 72:13
