Zayse, Zergulla in Ethiopia

A basic value of the Zayse is tokuma, which is identification with the group. Cooperation is central to this system, especially in work arrangements. The Zayse have a reputation for being easygoing and sociable. They value hospitality and almsgiving, but more to relatives and friends than to strangers. The vast majority of the Zayse are animistic; that is, they believe that living things and inanimate objects have a soul or spirit. They worship a supreme, masculine sky god, whom they view as being remote and inaccessible. They also believe in the existence of zar, or spirits that live near water and in other places. It is also believed the zar may possess people.

Ministry Obstacles

No scripture has been reported in the language of the Zayse, but Gospel recordings are available. Please pray for workers to take these to the people.

Outreach Ideas

Please pray that some of the many Christians in Ethiopia will be given a desire and burden to take the good news of Jesus to the Zayse people. Pray they won't be overlooked.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

It is questionable as to whether any of the Zayse tribe know and follow Jesus as Savior and Lord. But pray for those who will soon come to saving faith. They will need workers to help them become firmly established on God's promises, not doubting or wavering.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Please pray for pure drinking water for the Zayse people, and for sufficient water for their crops.

Scripture Focus

"For from the rising of the sun, even to its setting, My name will be great among the nations ... says the Lord of hosts." Malachi 1:11

Aoka in China

Algunos aoka creen que había una escalera que conectaba el cielo con la tierra. Hace mucho tiempo, la escalera se rompió y nadie ha podido visitar el cielo desde entonces. Hoy en día la mayoría de los aoka son animistas que viven bajo la influencia de los demonios y espíritus malignos. Después de siglos de vivir al lado de los poderosos chinos "han", los aoka han perdido su lengua y están siendo rápidamente asimilados al lenguaje y la cultura de los chinos han.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

Las antiguas creencias religiosas de los aoka son un obstáculo, pero no un obstáculo imposible.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Las creencias animistas de los aoka puede ser el fundamento de una creencia en el Dios creador.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Hay seguidores de Cristo en la comunidad aoka. Ore para que sean enseñados adecuadamente con las verdades de las Escrituras, y para que crezcan en la disciplina y amonestación del Señor. Ore para que se unan en torno a la verdad.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore para que la comunidad aoka sea capaz de conservar su patrimonio cultural, y para que viva en armonía con sus vecinos.

Texto Bíblico

"Tendrá misericordia del pobre y del menesteroso, Y salvará la vida de los pobres." Salmos 72:13

Zayse, Zergulla in 에티오피아

Zayse인들의 기본적인 가치는 tokuma라고 하며, 이는 전체 종족의 정체성입니다. 이 제도안에서 협동은 가장 중요한 것이며, 특별히 일의 분담에 있어서 더 그러합니다. Zayse인들은 느긋하고 사교적인 성향으로 알려져있습니다. 이들은 호의를 베푸는것과 구호활동에 가치를 두지만, 모르는 사람보다는 친척이나 친구들에게 베풀곤 합니다. Zayse사람들의 대부분이 정령신앙을 믿으며, 살아있는 생명체나 살아있지 않은 물체에도 영혼이나 정령이 있다고 믿습니다. 이들은 가장 멀리 있고 닿을 수 없으며 최고로 높은, 하늘의 남성 신에게 경배합니다. 그들은 또한 물에 살거나, 다른 여러 장소에 존재한다는 zar 혹은 정령들의 존재를 믿습니다. Zar는 사람들을 사로잡을 수도 있다고 믿습니다.

선교 장애 요인

Zayse언어로 된 성경이 하나도 없지만, 오디오 복음은 있습니다. 사역자들이 이 자료들을 그들에게 전해줄 수 있도록 기도해주십시오.

전도 방법 제안

에디오피아에 있는 많은 그리스도인들가운에서 Zayse부족에게 예수님의 복된 소식을 전하고자 하는 마음을 가질 수 있게 되도록 기도해주십시오. 이 부족을 지나치치 않도록 기도해주십시오.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

Zayse인들가운데 예수님을 구세주로 알거나 믿고 있는 사람들이 있는지 알수는 없습니다. 하지만, 믿음으로 나아올 사람들을 위해 기도해주십시오. 그들이 의심이나 흔들림없이 하나님의 약속에 굳건히 설 수 있도록 도와줄 사역자들이 필요로합니다.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

Zayse사람들이 깨끗한 물을 먹을 수 있도록, 그리고 농작물을 재배하기 위한 충분한 물이 있을 수 있도록 기도해주십시오.

성경 말씀

만군의 여호와가 이르노라 해 뜨는 곳에서부터 해 지는 곳까지의 이방 민족 중에서 내 이름이 크게 될 것이라 각처에서 내 이름을 위하여 분향하며 깨끗한 제물을 드리리니 이는 내 이름이 이방 민족 중에서 크게 될 것임이니라 말라기 1:11
