Nosu, Tianba of China

Violent conflict, inter-tribal and inter-clan warfare, and the taking of slaves were commonplace among the various branches of the Nosu until recently. The War songs were equally awe inspiring: "We are the famous Black Nosu! We are the tigers who eat up human flesh! We are the butchers who skin people alive! We are the supermen!'" The Tianba Nosu have been influenced by Chinese culture more than the other Nosu groups in Sichuan, although they still retain their traditional dress and most of their ceremonies and customs.

Ministry Obstacles

These people may have little concept of a loving, forgiving creator God.

Outreach Ideas

Sustained, focused prayer is needed to prepare these people to receive the good news of Christ.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There may be no followers of Christ among the Tianba Nosu today, but pray for those that will soon emerge from this group. Pray they will be kind and compassionate to one another.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Tianba Nosu may overcome their history of violence, and increasingly hunger to know the Prince of peace.
