pronounced: Nor-soo, Yee-nuoh
The Yinuo Nosu took slaves and fought against the Chinese authorities and other Nosu groups for centuries, until they were disarmed and the slave system abolished by the Communists in the early 1950s. Still today, the Yinuo Nosu remain an aggressive and fierce people. The various branches of the Nosu have a detailed legend of a great flood.
Intimidating mountains, rugged terrain, and cultural and linguistic barriers have prevented the Gospel from spreading to the Yinuo Nosu.
The flood legend in their culture can be used as a springboard to introduce them to Scripture.
There may be a few followers of Christ among the Yinuo people group. Pray they will fellowship together, growing in the knowledge of Christ. Pray they will be completely humble and gentle toward one another. Pray for the material and physical needs of the Yinuo, as well as for their spiritual needs.
"I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations ... Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth." Psalm 57:9-11
