Mongour of China
Thirty thousand speakers of the Mongour language were reported in a 1987 study. They primarily inhabit Minhe County in the eastern part of Qinghai Province. Two types of shamans are active among the Mongour. "White shamans" are used to heal sickness, while "black shamans" bring vengeance on enemies. Another highly regarded religious figure is the kurtain. This is a person who allows himself to be possessed by an evil Daoist spirit.
There are few Christian resources available in the language of the Mongour.
Pray that Han Chinese Christians will remember to carry the Gospel of Christ to the Mongour people.
There are likely a few followers of Jesus among the Mongour people. Pray they will be accurately taught the ways of Christ. They need materials to help them learn, and they need teachers.
Pray that the Mongour community will prosper, living in peace and providing adequately for material needs.
