Ani in China

Approximately 5,000 people belonging to the Ani tribe live in one small area of southwest China. Today the Ani are being rapidly assimilated into the Han Chinese culture and language. Although they mostly ignore him, the Ani believe in a Creator. Today, most practice simple ancestor worship and believe in spirits that can cause disease if ceremonies are not held to placate them. Catholic and Protestant mission work in Kaiyuan County prior to 1949 failed to impact the Ani people. Although Catholic work began in the late 1800s, the first Protestant missionary in Kaiyuan was an American who came in 1914. Five years after he came, he had won only eight people to Christ. Today there are no known believers among the Ani people.

Ministry Obstacles

Scripture is not reported as available in the primary language of the Ani.

Outreach Ideas

Perhaps some Han Chinese believers near the Ani will be led to take the Gospel of Christ to them. Pray they will be well prepared for this, and will be obedient.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Although there are no known followers of Jesus today among the Ani, please pray for those the Lord will call to himself. They will need prayer support.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Lord is even now preparing the hearts of the Ani to receive the Gospel when it comes to them. If they don't have an interest in the Gospel, it may be meaningless to them.

Scripture Focus

"Now go out to the street corners and invite everyone you see." Matthew 22:9

Ani in China

Aproximadamente 5. 000 personas pertenecientes a la tribu Ani viven en un área pequeña del suroeste de China. Hoy en día los Ani están siendo asimilados rápidamente a la cultura e idioma china Han. Aunque la mayoría lo ignoran, los Ani creen en un Creador. Hoy en día, la mayoría practica adoración simple de antepasados y creen en espíritus que pueden causar enfermedades si ceremonias no se llevan a cabo para apaciguarlos. El trabajo misionero católico y protestante en el condado Kaiyuan antes de 1949 fracaso en impactar la gente Ani. Aunque el trabajo católico inicio a finales de 1800, el primer misionero protestante en Kaiyuan fue un americano que vino en 1914. Cinco años después que llego, él había ganado 8 personas por Cristo. Hoy no hay creyentes conocidos entre la gente Ani.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

No se hay reportado como disponible la Escritura en el idioma principal de los Ani

Ideas para el Ministerio

Tal vez algunos creyentes chinos Han cerca de los Ani serán guiados a llevar el Evangelio de Cristo a los Ani. Ore para que estén bien preparados para esto, y serán obedientes.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Aunque no existen seguidores conocidos de Jesús hoy entre los Ani, Por favor ore por los que el Señor llamara a sí mismo. Ellos necesitan apoyo a través de la oración.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore para que el Señor este ahora preparando los corazones de los Ani para recibir el Evangelio cuando les llegue. Si ellos no tienen un interés en el Evangelio, no tendrá significado para ellos.

Texto Bíblico

"Id, pues, a las salidas de los caminos, y llamad a las bodas a cuantos halléis." Mateo 22:9

Ani in 중국

Ani 민족에 속하는 대략 5000명의 사람들이 중국 남서부의 작은 지역에 거주하고 있습니다. 오늘날 Ani 민족은 중국 한족의 문화와 언어에 빠르게 흡수되고 있습니다. 비록 대부분은 그분을 무시하지만, Ani민족은 창조주를 믿긴 합니다. 오늘날 이 민족의 대부분의 사람들은 조상에 대한 간단한 제사를 지내며, 만약 이 제사가 그 영혼들을 달래지 못하면 그들이 질병을 일으킬 수 있다고 믿습니다. 1949년까지는 카톨릭과 개신교 선교활동이 Kaiyuan 주에서 있었지만 Ani민족에게 영향을 주는데에는 실패했습니다. 비록 카톨릭 사역이 1800년대 후반부터 시작됐지만, Kaiyuan지역의 최초 개신교 선교사는 미국인으로서 1914년에 왔습니다. 그가 온지 5년이 지나 그는 겨우 8명의 그리스도인을 얻었습니다. 오늘날 Ani 민족내에 신자로 알려진 사람들은 없습니다.

선교 장애 요인

Ani민족이 사용하는 언어로 된 성경말씀은 없다고 보고됩니다.

전도 방법 제안

아마도 Ani민족 근처에 있는 몇몇 한족 중국인 신자들이 그리스도의 복음을 이들에게 가지고 갈 수 있을 것입니다. 그들이 이것을 위해 잘 준비되고 순종할 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

비록 오늘날 Ani민족 내에 예수님을 따르는 신자는 알려지지 않았지만 주님께서 그에게 부르실 자들을 위해 기도해 주십시오. 이들은 기도의 후원이 필요합니다.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

복음이 이들에게 전해졌을 때 Ani민족의 마음이 받아들일 준비가 되도록 지금부터라도 주님께 기도해 주십시오. 만약 이들이 복음에 관심이 없다면, 이들에게 의미없는 것이 될 수도 있기 때문입니다.

성경 말씀

"사거리 길에 가서 사람을 만나는대로 혼인 잔치에 청하여 오너라 한 대" 마태복음 22:9
