Laba in China

The Laba are also widely known as the Huguang, or Huguangren. Laba is the name they call themselves. The Laba were probably originally a garrison of Han Chinese soldiers who were sent to Guizhou to fight the Miao. After hostilities ceased, the soldiers stayed behind, married local women, and gradually developed a separate ethnicity until they forgot their roots as Han people. The customs and celebrations of the Laba reflect both Miao and Han influences. For many years the main cultural connection between the Laba and Miao was the fact that they prepared and ate the same kind of food, which is significant in China. Ancestor worship and animism are the primary religious systems practiced by the Laba. In the past, a cow was sacrificed to the spirits of the Laba's ancestors every three years.

Ministry Obstacles

The Laba have been animists for generations. Change is difficult and painful.

Outreach Ideas

Please pray for workers to take the good news of Jesus Christ to the Laba people. There are many resources available that will help with this in Mandarin Chinese.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are a number of Laba who identify themselves as Christians. Pray they will live holy lives, zealous to know and serve the Lord. Pray they provide an excellent testimony to family and friends.

Pray for the Entire People Group

"The gospel has never taken root among this group as it has among other peoples in the area." Please pray this situation will change soon.

Scripture Focus

"Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day, and that repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all the nations." Luke 24:46-47

Laba in China

El Laba también son ampliamente conocidos como el Huguang o Huguangren. Laba es el nombre que se llaman a sí mismos. El Laba probablemente eran originalmente una guarnición de soldados chinos Han que fueron enviados a Guizhou para combatir los Miao. Después de que cesaran las hostilidades, los soldados se quedaron, se casaron con mujeres locales y se desarrollaron gradualmente una etnia separada hasta que se olvidaron de sus raíces como pueblo Han. Las costumbres y celebraciones de la Laba reflejan tanto Miao y Han influencias. Durante muchos años la principal conexión cultural entre el Laba y Miao fue el hecho de que se preparaban y comieron el mismo tipo de comida, lo cual es significativo en China. Culto a los antepasados ​​y el animismo son el religioso primario sistemas practicados por la Laba. En el pasado, una vaca fue sacrificada a los espíritus de los antepasados ​​de la Laba cada tres años.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

El Laba haber sido animistas por generaciones. El cambio es difícil y doloroso.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Por favor, Ore para que los trabajadores tomen las buenas nuevas de Jesucristo a las personas Laba. Hay muchos recursos disponibles que le ayudarán con esto en Chino mandarín.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Hay una serie de Laba que se identifican como cristianos. Ore que ellos vivir vidas santas, celoso de conocer y servir al Señor. Ore para que proporcionan un excelente testimonio de familiares y amigos.

Ore por toda la Etnia

"El evangelio nunca ha echado raíces en este grupo, ya que tiene entre otros pueblos de la zona." Por favor ore para que esta situación cambie pronto.

Texto Bíblico

"Y les dijo: Así está escrito, y así fue necesario que el Cristo padeciese, y resucitase de los muertos al tercer día; y que se predicase en su nombre el arrepentimiento y el perdón de pecados en todas las naciones, comenzando desde Jerusalén." Lucas 24:4

Laba in 중국

Laba 사람들은 Huguang 혹은 Huguangren 사람들이라고도 널리 알려져 있습니다. Laba 는 그들이 스스로를 부르는 이름입니다. Laba 사람들은 묘족(Miao) 사람들과 전투하기 위해 한족(Han Chinese) 사람들이 귀주성에 파견했던 수비군의 후손으로 생각됩니다. 적대감이 사그러든 후에 병사들은 그 지역에 남겨졌고, 지역 여성들과 결혼하였으며, 자신들이 한족이었다는 기억을 잊어버리고 새로운 인종집단을 서서히 만들었던 것으로 생각됩니다. Laba 종족의 관습과 축제는 묘족과 한족의 영향을 모두 받았습니다. Laba 종족과 묘족 사이의 문화적 연결성이 짙다는 것은, 그들이 같은 종류의 음식을 먹기 때문이고, 중국에서는 이것이 큰 의미를 가집니다. Laba 종족의 일차적 종교체계는 조상 숭배와 정령신앙입니다. 과거에는 Laba 종족 조상들의 정령에게 암소 한마리를 삼년마다 희생제사로 바쳤다고 합니다.

선교 장애 요인

Laba 사람들은 여러 세대에 걸쳐 정령신앙인이었습니다. 변화라는 것은 어렵고 고통스럽습니다.

전도 방법 제안

Laba 사람들에게 예수 그리스도의 좋은 소식을 들고갈 사역자들을 위해 기도해 주십시오. 만다린어로 된 좋은 복음 자료들이 사용가능합니다.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

Laba 종족 가운데에서 스스로를 기독교인이라고 밝히는 이들이 소수 있습니다. 이들이 거룩한 삶을 살고, 주님을 알고 섬기는데 열정적일 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오. 그들이 가족과 친구들에게 뛰어난 증언을 할 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

이 지역에 사는 다른 종족들에게 복음이 뿌리를 내렸지만, 이 종족 집단에서는 결코 그런적이 없습니다 이런 상황이 곧 변하도록 기도해 주십시오.

성경 말씀

또 이르시되 이같이 그리스도가 고난을 받고 제 삼일에 죽은 자 가운데서 살아날 것과 또 그의 이름으로 죄 사함을 얻게 하는 회개가 예루살렘으로부터 시작하여 모든 족속에게 전파될 것이 기록되었으니 누가복음 24:46-47
