Ghao-Xong, Eastern of China
During the Song Dynasty (AD 960-1279) the Ghao-Xong staged 112 wars to save their tribal lands and preserve their way of life. The Miao (Ghao-Xong) people in Hunan seem to have been badly oppressed by the Chinese over a long period of time. The Ghao-Xong have the custom of worshiping Pan Hu, the dragon-dog they claim as their ancestor. Most of their villages are on the top of mountains where they are able to maintain their customs in privacy.
The Ghao-Xong may have little concept of a transcendent creator God who desires to express His love to them.
The existing believers among the Ghao-Xong may become mature enough in the Lord to carry the Gospel effectively to their neighbors and friends. Pray for them.
There are known followers of Christ among the Ghao-Xong, which is very encouraging. Pray for these people to become firmly established on the truths of Scripture, trusting fully in the finished work of Christ for their salvation and for his Holy Spirit to produce the fruit of Christ's character.
Pray for the Ghao-Xong people to be able to provide good schools for their children, and to have adequate means to provide for their families.
"The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest." Matthew 9:37-38
