Tibetan, Zhugqu of China

The Zhugqu Tibetans have a long history. A Chinese writer remarked, "Their forebears fled from the horrors of war and eventually settled here and in surrounding areas, where they have multiplied over the generations." Their pre-Buddhist religion of Bon includes the belief that mountains are holy. They believe powerful demons live inside the highest mountains. "They pray to the mountain god to make their hopes and wishes come true: peace, security, thriving livestock and abundant harvests."

Ministry Obstacles

These Tibetans have virtually no background knowledge or experience that will form the basis for understanding who Christ is, and what he has done.

Outreach Ideas

The stories of Scripture, beginning with the creation and fall of man, can form the foundation for faith in Christ.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the Christians that will someday emerge from this Tibetan people group - that they will grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, being adequately instructed in the faith.

Pray for the entire people group

These people have no knowledge of Christ. Pray that Christians will be sent to carry the message of Christ, to instruct them and to love them.

Scripture Focus

"You purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation." Revelation 5:9
