Naxi of China

The lives of the Naxi changed greatly when China became a communist nation in 1949. Originally, they were nomadic herdsmen, traveling through central China and living in felt tents. Later they were forced to move farther south, where they eventually settled and became farmers. Most Naxi do not have any religious preferences at all. It is interesting to note, however, that many of them do believe in a creator; they simply are not sure who he is.

Ministry Obstacles

The Naxi may have little desire to find and know the creator God. Pray for a growing desire.

Outreach Ideas

Workers are needed to explain to the Naxi that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is the creator God, and that Jesus is his Son.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray the Christian believers among the Naxi will be zealous to know and serve the Lord, and will live holy lives that please him. Pray they live a life of love, just as Christ loved them and gave himself up for them.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Naxi will increasingly discover who the unknown creator is, and will desire to know and follow him.
