Shixing in China

Unreached of the Day  5/21/2019

Shixing in China

The area inhabited by the Shixing has a long and rich history. Their villages are "guarded by watchtowers erected by powerful Naxi kings several hundred years ago." The Naxi's interest in the region may have been due to the abundance of gold once found in the Shou Chu River. There has never been a known believer or Christian fellowship among the Shixing people.

Ministry Obstacles

The Shixing have no background in monotheism - there is much to correct in their worldview.

Outreach Ideas

Han Chinese believers may be able to carry the message of salvation to their Shixing neighbors.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the believers that will one day soon be found among the Shixing, that pastors and teachers are even now being prepared for them.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for the Holy Spirit to give the Shixing people love for God's Word and a desire to spread its influence. Pray they will awaken to their need for life as found in the one who is "the Way, the Truth, and the Life."

Scripture Focus

"Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance, and the very ends of the earth as Your possession." Psalm 2:8
