Darkhad in Mongolia

Darkhads have a strong history of shamanism. Shamans supposedly treat the soul and mind and help people overcome bad luck. "Black" shamans in Mongolia maintain the shaman worldview and traditions, while "yellow" shamans have adopted Buddhist ideas. Darkhad shamans have been black shamans for hundreds of years. The Darkhads live in the beautiful mountainous Darkhad Valley, watered by countless rivers and containing 300 lakes. The area is home to some of the most powerful shamans in Mongolia.

Ministry Obstacles

The worldview of the Shamanist and Buddhist is radically different than that of the Christian.

Outreach Ideas

Christian resources are not available in the Darkhat language. However, the people can largely understand standard Mongolian, and many resources are available in this language. Pray for workers.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There is probably not a single follower of Jesus among the Darkhad people in Mongolia and national believers are not located nearby. Pray the growing Mongolian church will be unsatisfied until they reach their Darkhad brothers and sisters.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Darkhad people will be able to transition successfully into the modern world, seeking and obtaining a good education for their children.

Scripture Focus

"I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples." Psalm 108:3

Darkhad in Mongolia

Los darkhad tienen una fuerte historia del chamanismo. Los chamanes supuestamente tratan el alma, la mente y ayudan a la gente a superar la mala suerte. Los chamanes "negros" en Mongolia mantienen la cosmovisión y tradiciones chamán, mientras que los chamanes "amarillos" han adoptado las ideas budistas. Los chamanes darkhad han sido chamanes negros durante cientos de años. Los darkhad viven en las hermosas montañas del Valle Darkhad, regada por innumerables ríos y con 300 lagos. El área es el hogar de algunos de los chamanes más poderosos en Mongolia.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

La cosmovisión de los chamanistas y budistas es radicalmente diferente a la de los cristianos.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Los recursos cristianos no están disponibles en el idioma darkhat. Sin embargo, la gente puedee entender en gran medida el idioma mongol, y muchos recursos están disponibles en éste lenguaje. Ore por obreros.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Probablemente no hay ni un solo seguidor de Jesús entre los darkhad en Mongolia y no hay creyentes nacionales que viven cerca. Ore que la creciente iglesia mongol no esté satisfecha hasta alcanzar a sus vecinos darkhad.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore para que los darkhad puedan hacer una transición exitosa al mundo moderno, buscando y obteniendo una buena educación para sus niños.

Texto Bíblico

"Te alabaré, oh Jehová, entre los pueblos; A ti cantaré salmos entre las naciones." Salmos 108:3

Darkhad in 몽골

Darkhads 종족에는 샤머니즘이 만연했던 역사가 있습니다. 무당들은 영혼과 마음을 치료해준다고 하며 사람들의 불운을 막는 것을 돕겠다는 이들입니다. 몽고의 "흑무당"(black shaman)들은 무당의 세계관과 전통을 유지하고 있는 반면, "황무당"(yellow shaman)들은 불교의 사상들을 도입했습니다. Darkhad 무당들은 수백년간 흑무당의 역할을 했습니다. 이 사람들은 아름다운 Darkhad 산악 협곡 지대에서 거주하는데, 이 협곡에는 수많은 강이 연결되고 300개의 호수가 있습니다. 이 지역은 몽고의 가장 강력한 무당들의 본산지이기도 합니다.

선교 장애 요인

샤머니즘을 믿는 자들과 불교도의 세계관은 기독교 세계관과는 아주 다릅니다.

전도 방법 제안

기독교 자료들이 Darkhat언어로 번역되어 있지 못합니다. 그렇지만, 많은 사람들이 표준 몽고어를 이해할 수 있고, 많은 복음의 자료들이 몽고 언어로 준비되어 있습니다. 사역자들을 위해 기도해 주십시오.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

몽고의 Darkhad인들 가운데 예수님을 믿는 사람은 단 한명도 없다고 여겨지고, 또한 몽고의 그리스도인들은 이들이 사는 지역 가까이에 없을 수 있습니다. 몽고의 교회가 성장할때에 그들이 Darkhad의 형제 자매들에게 복음으로 다가갈 때까지는 만족하지 않게 되도록 기도해주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

Darkhad사람들이 현대 세계에 잘 적응할 수 있도록 그들의 자녀를 위한 좋은 교육을 찾고 얻을 수 있도록 기도해주십시오.

성경 말씀

여호와여 내가 만민 중에서 주께 감사하고 뭇 나라 중에서 주를 찬양하오리니 시편 108:3
