Hui in Kyrgyzstan

A Chinese proverb states, "A Chinese awake is not the equal of a Hui sleeping." The Hui people are known as astute businesspersons. They live across the nation of China and in seven other countries in Asia and the Middle East. A small group also resides in Kyrgyzstan. The Hui are almost all Sunni Muslims. As Muslims, they have sometimes endured persecution in China. Most Hui today make their living in trade, banking, commerce and agriculture.

Ministry Obstacles

The Hui have been Muslims since the time of the Mongols in the 13th century. Islam is part of their cultural identity.

Outreach Ideas

Chinese Hui believers can go to Kyrgyzstan and form business partnerships with them. Many resources are available in Mandarin, the primary language of the Hui, including a complete Bible and the JESUS Film. The Hui can listen to Mandarin radio broadcasts.

Scripture Focus

"Full of splendor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever."  Psalm 111:3

Scripture Prayer

Pray for many from this people group to find this God whose righteousness never fails.

Prayer Focus

As far as we know, there are no believers among the Hui in Kyrgyzstan. Pray that God would soon open doors for Christian materials to reach Hui communities. Ask God to mobilize the church in Kyrgyzstan toward reaching out to the Hui with the goal of bringing about a Disciple Making Movement.
