The lack of a written script has caused great anguish among the Miao (Qanu are a subgroup) for centuries. A Miao pastor, Wang Mingji, declared his feelings: "We Miao do not have writing. For thousands of years we have been like the blind." The majority of Qanu are animists. The spirit of the water is particularly held in great fear. They are primarily located in villages to the south of the city of Kaili, in Guizhou Province.
Lack of literacy can be an obstacle to the Gospel, but this can be partially overcome by using oral communication approaches effectively.
Christians can carry the good news of Jesus to the Qanu community by recounting stories from Scripture, as well as using Gospel recordings and films.
There may be no believers in Jesus among the Qanu today. However, pray for those that will soon come to faith, that the Lord will provide excellent teachers and pastors to help them. Pray for Scripture availability.
Pray the Qanu people will be delivered from fear of created things, and will come to reverence and know the one who is the Creator.
