Amdo, Hbrogpa in China

pronounced: DRUK-pah AHM-doe

"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.

Scripture Focus

Yes, the Sovereign Lord is coming in power. He will rule with a powerful arm. See, He brings His reward with Him as He comes. Is 40: 10

Scripture Prayer

Pray for many from this people group to claim this verse by embracing the Lord.

Prayer Focus

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