Mongour in China

Thirty thousand speakers of the Mongour language were reported in a 1987 study. They primarily inhabit Minhe County in the eastern part of Qinghai Province. Two types of shamans are active among the Mongour. "White shamans" are used to heal sickness, while "black shamans" bring vengeance on enemies. Another highly regarded religious figure is the kurtain. This is a person who allows himself to be possessed by an evil Daoist spirit.

Ministry Obstacles

There are few Christian resources available in the language of the Mongour.

Outreach Ideas

Pray that Han Chinese Christians will remember to carry the Gospel of Christ to the Mongour people.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There are likely a few followers of Jesus among the Mongour people. Pray they will be accurately taught the ways of Christ. They need materials to help them learn, and they need teachers.

Pray for the entire people group

Ask God to deliver families and communities within the Mongour people from fears that hinder them from embracing His blessings. Pray that the Mongour community will prosper, living in peace and providing adequately for material needs.
