The Yinuo have the same fierce, aggressive reputation as other Nosu people. The Yinuo furiously fought against the soldiers of the People's Liberation Army but were finally overwhelmed by sheer numbers. They now submit to China's government like the other minorities in that huge nation.
The Yinuo's ancestor worship and folk religion are vastly different from biblical Christianity. The Yinuo speak a dialect of the Nosu language that is unintelligible to their neighbors. They live in mountains and forests far from urban areas of China. Therefore, their language and remoteness provide additional challenges to getting them the gospel.
Chinese believers can go to the Yinuo and tell them about the Savior. Agricultural experts can visit the Yinuo and help them improve their farm production.
"And you will say in that day: Give thanks to the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the peoples, proclaim that his name is exalted." Isaiah 12:4
May this people group praise Him and tell others of His mighty deeds.
There are a few thousand Roman Catholic believers among the Yinuo, so pray that they would be instructed in God's Word and filled with the Spirit of God. Pray that workers would be called to this harvest field, and that the necessary resources would become available. Pray that the Yinuo would have a church planting movement started among them. Pray that the Yinuo Nosu would hear the truth of God's Word, believe it and act upon it.
