Minyak of China
The Minyak are part of the Tibetan nationality. They have been described as a "peaceful, sedentary Tibetan tribe, a most inoffensive, obliging, happy-go-lucky people." They live quiet lives in nearly complete isolation from the rest of the world. Almost all Minyak adhere to Tibetan Buddhism. They observe Tibetan festivals and make pilgrimages to Tibetan holy sites.
The Minyak may fear disturbing community harmony, and desire peace more than truth.
Workers are needed to carry the Gospel message to the Minyak community. Perhaps Han Chinese believers will shoulder the task.
Pray for followers of Christ to soon emerge from the Minyak community, that the Lord even now is preparing pastors and teachers for them. Pray for resources to be available to them, as well.
Pray for the light of the Gospel of Christ to shine in the Minyak community.
