Lahuli, Tinan of China
The Lahuli Tinan are also known as Bhotia, referring to people of Tibetan stock in general. Lahuli is also a generic term used to describe the inhabitants of the Lahul District. Lahuli men are skillful merchants and traders, and Lahuli women are known for their independence. "Since their husbands are usually off on trading expeditions, the women feel free to take more than one husband". The strength of Tibetan Buddhism in the region depends to a great extent on the prosperity and generosity of the Lahuli Tinan.
The Buddhist Lahuli Tinan may not be fully aware of their need for forgiveness of sin.
A few communication tools are available in the language of this community. Pray for workers to take Gospel recordings and other communication tools to this people group.
There are a handful of Lahuli Tinan believers in India, but none are known on the Tibetan side of the border. Few have ever heard of Jesus Christ. Pray that there will soon be a growing number on both sides of the border.
Pray for the gift of conviction of sin to be given to the Lahuli Tinan Buddhists, that they will acknowledge their need for a savior, and will then discover the work of Jesus on the cross.
