The Hui

The Hui, about 15 million people, are the largest and most widespread of China’s Muslim nationalities. They also comprise the third largest minority group in China. Out of 15 million Hui people, less than 1% have heard the Gospel.

The Dongxiang

The Dongxiang people, with a population of 621,500, are the fourth largest of China’s 10 Muslim people groups. The largest concentration of the Dongxiang people is in the rugged, dry mountains of Gansu Province. Most are isolated from the outside world with few if any opportunities to hear the Gospel.

The Salar

The Salar people migrated from the Samarkand region of Central Asia many centuries ago. According to oral tradition their forefathers bound a copy of the Koran to the head of a camel and followed it until it stopped at a waterfall and turned to stone in their present home of Qinghai province in Northwest China. Today two-thirds of the 120,000 Salar people still live in this small area of Xunhua County, Qinghai province.

The Huihui

The Huihui are a small unreached people group of about 10,000 people found in Sanya on Hainan Island. The Huihui identify themselves as part of the Hui minority group in China. However, they realize they are different. They have slightly different facial features and skin color and look more Malaysian than Chinese. In fact, they trace their ancestry back to Malaysia, Cambodia and/or Vietnam.

This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: “Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.”

Zechariah 4:6

Surrender not Success

After nearly thirty-six hours of travel, three flights, six meals, and one relatively sleepless night, I was tired, worn, and ready for a shower. However, even with my travel exhaustion, I noticed two things: the smell of the new food and the haste at which every single person was moving. I stand up in the plane and feel people quickly shuffling off, nearly running through the airport… even at four in the morning!

God’s Perfect Plan – Using Healthcare Skills for the Advance of the Gospel

However, sometimes we also work. This time, I mean an actual job—something we are committed (or contracted) to, something that earns money, something that can actually pull us away from that other work I mentioned first.

I firmly believe that the Lord gives us specific skill sets that he intends to use for His ultimate purpose. He provides ways for us to improve and grow those skills. I can’t imagine that the Lord would plan our lives so specifically and then not put us in a position to use the gifts He has given!

Tats and Consequences

“The True God must really care for your son!” I approached my friend in his clothing shop to take some advice and medicine to him to help with a pesky rash his son had been battling. I had it all worked out – I was going to tell him about how I had been to a graduation ceremony, 50,000 people in attendance at a huge stadium, I looked up and there was an old friend … who happens to be a dermatologist!

“I was born this way.”

“I was born this way”

The other day, I was having a conversation with a sweet Hui friend and was reminded of Lady Gaga (bear with me). It may seem like a weird connection, mostly because it is, but it just helped me to understand something, hopefully it will help you understand a little more too.
