If you live in America and want to be more actively, physically involved in work overseas, you might wonder how much you can really do when you’re continents away from the Hui.
My family’s life here is a living, breathing, walking, talking testimony to what you can REALLY do and how it REALLY makes a difference in how we serve in our community.
Pray4Hui.com provides stories and prayer requests to guide churches around the world as they pray for God’s saving power to be known among the Hui people. As people and churches pray for God to send workers into His harvest among the Hui, it is likely that some if not many who are praying begin to wonder how they can partner in proclaiming the Gospel among the Hui.
Engaging the Hui is a significant commitment for any church to make. Helping a church to fulfill this calling is also a large commitment for field workers. However, these partnerships are vital for advancing the Gospel among this people group. We believe a partnership covenant is an important step to ensure that both parties are committed and focused on making the relationship work.
As a church puts together an advocacy team focused on engaging the Hui, it’s important for that team to research and learn as much as they can about the Hui and the work already being done among them. To help teams, we will host Hui summits. These summits will be 2-3 days and cover a variety of topics:
After 30 days of prayer for the Hui, if your church chooses to pursue engaging the Hui with the Gospel, it will be important to form a Hui Advocacy Team. There are a few reasons for this. One, your church staff already has many responsibilities and even if they have a missions pastor, coordinating all aspects of engaging the Hui would be overwhelming. Second, it is important to have continuity between trips. Each short-term trip will be composed of different people, but it is important that a few people form a core to provide training for each team, communicate with field leadership and recruit teams to go. Third, it is necessary for someone (or a couple of people) to take ownership of developing a prayer strategy for the Hui in your local fellowship.
We are absolutely dependent on God to accomplish His mission among the Hui. Without the power of the Holy Spirit, there is no need for us to live among the Hui or spend time traveling among them on a short-term trip. Our money, time, influence, skills and charisma do not turn Hui people to Jesus; it only happens through the work of the Holy Spirit.
