Lami of China

Viewing 8/02/2017

Lami of China

In the distant past the Lami were a part of a large group of Tibeto-Burman peoples, including today's Akha, Hani, and Yi. Research indicates the formation of today's distinct Hani groups started in the thirteenth century, probably as a result of Genghis Khan's conquest of Yunnan. The Lami keep strictly to the customs handed down from their ancestors.

Ministry Obstacles

The Lami commitment to the ways of their ancestors is an obstacle to faith in Christ.

Outreach Ideas

Pray that Han Chinese believers will be given the desire to carry the Gospel message to the Lami community.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the followers of Christ among the Lami, that they will be filled with knowledge and grace from the Lord Jesus Christ. Pray they will live a life worthy of their calling in Christ.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for the Lami community to be able to turn from the customs of their ancestors to follow the living Christ.
