Asian Pacific Rim Unengaged Peoples

As far back as the 10th century, the Eastern Xiangxi Miao of China were fierce fighters, defending their people against marauding forces. Even through hundreds of years of heavy oppression, they have maintained their cultural independence. They do not know God is their defender and deliverer; instead, they worship Pan Hu, a dragon-dog god, whom they believe gave birth to their race. They offer sacrifices and pray to spirits, searching for what only Jesus can offer. Pray that their eyes will be opened to the glorious truth of the gospel and their hearts will be freed from the chains that hold them down. Pray that, as they are set free, they will carry this good news to the next family, house, village, and mountain. “I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.”
