Shui of China

The Shui are proud of their history, which dates back as far as 200 BC in Chinese records. The Shui live in villages that are arranged according to family clans. All Shui worship their ancestors. This is considered their main religion. It keeps them in bondage to the past and prevents them from receiving Christ, because to do so would be considered an insult to their ancestors.

Ministry Obstacles

As already noted, the Shui live in fear of insulting their ancestors.

Outreach Ideas

Jesus needs to be presented to the Shui people as One who came from God, giving his life for their sins, offering forgiveness and power to live this life.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for Scripture and other resources to be made available to Shui believers, and that they will utilize them diligently. Pray they will have nothing to do with the deeds of darkness, living as children of light.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Lord will release the Shui from bondage to ancestral worship, leading to freedom in Christ.
