Ati in China

Several hundred years ago, tribes like the Ati lived relatively uninterrupted lives in the hills of central Yunnan. The Han Chinese then flooded the area in massive waves of migration, especially over the last 150 years. Today groups like the Ati, swamped amid the sea of Han Chinese, are barely noticeable to outsiders. As the Han grew in numbers and influence, they forced the Ati off the best land and into the mountains. The Ati were forced to move in order to retain their customs and ethnicity. Those who stayed in the rural areas were soon absorbed culturally and linguistically. The Ati are ardent animists and polytheists. In particular they revere and worship the Dragon god. Most Ati villages have a "dragon tree" set aside for this purpose.

Ministry Obstacles

Spiritual opposition will surely be encountered as Jesus is presented to these followers of "the Dragon god".

Outreach Ideas

Pray for Han Chinese followers of Christ to take an interest in the Ati people, and to be willing to overcome tribal barriers in order to take the news of Jesus to these people. Gospel recordings are available to help with this.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Please pray for the few individuals in the Ati people group who identify themselves as Christians. Pray they will come to truly know Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for the Ati to be completely set free from "the Dragon god". Freedom comes from knowing and serving Jesus Christ.

Scripture Focus

"...that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God; there is no one else." 1 Kings 8:60

Kim Mun in Vietnam

Los kim mun creen que cuando la gente mala muere va a un lugar terrible. Su percepción del infierno es un bosque denso, oscuro, sin aldeas o lugares abiertos. Se cree que la gente buena va a uno de los varios niveles del cielo, dependiendo de la cantidad de atención que el hijo mayor le da al espíritu de su padre muerto. Los kim mun adoran a sus antepasados sacrificando cerdos tres veces al año en homenaje a ellos.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

Las Escrituras no se encuentran disponibles en el idioma de los kim mun, a pesar de la disponibilidad de grabaciones evangélicas. Ore por los obreros.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Unos de los grupos más cristianizados en Vietnam, como los roglai, puede que sean capaces de llevar el mensaje del Evangelio a los kim mun.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Hay unos cuantos creyentes entre los kim mun. Ore para que se conviertan en buenos fundadores de la fe, seguros de su relación con Cristo y con crecimiento en justicia.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore para que estas personas animistas estén cada vez más interesadas en conocer el perdón de sus pecados, que se encuentra sólo a través de la obra terminada de Jesucristo.

Texto Bíblico

"Los entendidos resplandecerán como el resplandor del firmamento; y los que enseñan la justicia a la multitud, como las estrellas a perpetua eternidad." Daniel 12:3

Ati in 중국

몇 백년 전, Ati와 같은 부족들은 Yunnan성 중부의 언덕들에서 비교적 방해받지 않고 살았습니다. 그이후, 특별히 지난 150년 동안은 중국 한족의 거대한 이민의 물결이 이 지역을 휩쓸었습니다. 바다같이 거대한 한족들 사이에 드문드문 있는 습지와도 같은 Ati 등의 인종그룹들은 외부인들에게 거의 노출되지 않습니다. 한족의 수와 영향력이 커지면서, 그들은 Ati민족을 가장 좋은 땅에서 내몰아 산속으로 밀어넣었습니다. Ati민족은 그들의 전통과 민족성을 고수하기 위해 어쩔 수 없이 이주하게 되었습니다. 시골지방에 머무는 이들 종족은 문화적으로 또한 언어적으로 (한족에게) 곧 흡수되었습니다. Ati민족은 열렬한 정령숭배자이며 다신론자입니다. 특히 이들은 Dragon god(용의 신)을 존중하고 숭배합니다. 이러한 목적에 쓰기위해 대부분의 Ati 마을 한쪽에는 용나무(dragon tree)가 있습니다.

선교 장애 요인

이러한 "용신"을 믿는 사람들에게 예수님이 제시될 때는 분명 영적저항이 있을 것입니다.

전도 방법 제안

그리스도를 따르는 한족이 Ati민족에 대한 관심을 갖고 예수님의 소식을 이 사람들에게 가져가기 위하여 부족적인 장벽을 기꺼이 극복할 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오. 오디오녹음된 복음이 이것을 돕는데에 사용될 수 있을 것입니다.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

Ati민족 사람들 가운데 그들 스스로를 크리스천이라고 밝히는 소수의 사람들을 위해 기도해 주십시오. 이들이 지혜와 지식의 모든 보물이 감추인 그리스도를 진정으로 아는 데에 이르도록 기도해 주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

Ati민족이 "용신"으로부터 완전히 자유할 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오. 자유는 예수 그리스도를 알고 섬기는 것으로부터 주어집니다.

성경 말씀

이에 세상 만민에게 여호와께서만 하나님이시고 그 외에는 없는 줄을 알게 하시기를 원하노라 열왕기상 8:60
