Christmas Prayer Focus

 

 

 

 

Christmas is a great opportunity to proclaim the Gospel to the Hui. Join us this Christmas season in daily praying for God to move among the Hui and turn many to believe!

 

 

 

 

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

Christmas in Costumes

Over 7,000 miles away from where the Hui people reside, a small group of ladies wanted to take part in sharing the Good News with this unreached people group. Meanwhile, our team was anticipating a busy Christmas season, full of festive parties and opportunities to share the Good News with big groups of people. These ladies got together and utilized their gifts of sewing and creativity to play their part in this endeavor. They formed ideas, cut patterns, and worked at their sewing machines to create costumes that represented each person of the Christmas story.

Holidays with the Hui

A sweet Hui family, who own a hole in the wall restaurant, cooked up a special dish of “Big Plate Chicken” to serve on Thanksgiving evening to their foreign friends and special memories were made, deepening their relationship. Kiddos dressed up as angels and shepherds and heard the true story of Christmas while wearing costumes and having fun with their friends.

“And that’s why I know my sins are forgiven…”

“And that’s why I know my sins are forgiven.” I ended the gospel presentation. The Hui girl looked up at me. She had been very attentive as I explained the gospel. She then went on to explain her own opinion. I’ll summarize it for you:

“I don’t care.”

It wasn’t a mean-hearted apathy. It was just a content, blinded apathy. She was spiritually sick and dying and did not have any desire to seek healing.
