Amdo, Hbrogpa in China

"Hbrogpa" which means "nomad" or "herder" in Tibetan, is the largest of the four main Amdo languages. Most Amdo are semi-nomadic herders of sheep, yaks, and goats. Horrendous clashes with the Chinese have resulted in massive loss of life among the Amdo. The Dalai Lama listed 49,049 deaths from battles within the Amdo regions before 1983, in addition to 121,982 deaths from starvation.

Ministry Obstacles

The Tibetan region is difficult for outsiders to enter.

Outreach Ideas

Christians need to build bridges of trust and friendship with the Amdo, being genuinely concerned with their physical and material needs.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the Amdo who follow Christ, that they will fellowship together and will grow in love for Christ and for each other. Pray they will be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Amdo will increasingly be aware of their need for a savior, and will understand that a savior has been provided.

Scripture Focus

"How then shall they call upon Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?" Romans 10:14-15
