This is day 20 of 32. Throughout April, we will be posting daily. We invite you to learn about Chinese Muslims and pray with us for God’s glory to be made known among them. If you would like to read other posts in this series, you can find them here.
And I will sow her for myself in the land. And I will have mercy on No Mercy, and I will say to Not My People, “You are my people”; and he shall say, “You are my God.” (Hosea 2:23 ESV)
Joseph* and Mary* took their kids to visit a tea market, and the shopkeepers were all so excited
to talk to them. In the first visit, God allowed them to have very interesting conversations about the Qur’an, Muslims around the world, prayer, and Jesus. Now they go visit these Dongxiang friends every week, and every time they leave, a dozen new friends line up, waving and saying, “Come back and talk more!”
The Situation: No official study groups or churches exist among the Dongxiang, though there are a few Christians. Foreigners are restricted from the area, and Han Chinese believers have been harassed and even imprisoned for sharing the Gospel. There is currently no Bible, radio broad- cast or evangelistic material in the Dongxiang language.
We have a vision to see groups like these come to listen to the Gospel together, come to follow Jesus together, and naturally become a fellowship of Dongxiang followers of Jesus.
- Please cry out with us that God will raise hundreds and hundreds of communities to faith in Jesus, using natural relationship networks.
