Shengzha Nosu in China

Shengzha Nosu in China

The Shengzha Nosu people of Sichuan Province in China have a history of violence. They used to capture slaves in neighboring areas to do their manual labor. When the Chinese Communist Party took over south Sichuan in the early 1950s, it ended this practice.

Ministry Obstacles

The Shengzha live in isolated rural areas and often view strangers with suspicion. Chinese believers will need to make an effort to build relationships with them. The large majority of the Shengzha have practiced folk religion and polytheism for hundreds of years, so their faith is in other spirit beings.

Outreach Ideas

The New Testament is available in the Nosuo language, so there is a need for people to actively distribute it. Believers can help meet the medical and educational needs of this people group.

Scripture Focus

"With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation."  Isaiah 12:3

Scripture Prayer

May many from this people group drink deeply from the fountain of His salvation and mercy!

Prayer Focus

In the past three decades, over 12,000 Shengzha Nosu have made a profession of faith, so pray that these believers would allow the Holy Spirit to help them grow and share the gospel with their friends and families. Pray the Lord would get his word into the hands of the right people. Pray the Lord would send workers to tell them about Jesus. Pray that every Shengzha Nosu would have the opportunity to hear the good news. Pray that whole Nosu villages would come to Christ.
