Avar, Dagestani in Russia

The Avar are one of the largest native people groups living in Dagestan, located within the Caucasus Mountain region. They are very devoted to traditional family values. The basic unit of Avar society is the village community. A village assembly and a council of elders govern the community. Sunni Islam has been the prevailing religion of the Avar since the 13th century. Between the 5th and 12th centuries, Georgian Orthodox Christianity was introduced to the Avar. However, the influence of Islam was more lasting, and today the Avar are almost completely Muslim. They hold fast to their religion, and tradition seems to keep them from being receptive to the Gospel.

Ministry Obstacles

The Caucasus region is difficult to enter for geographical reasons, and the peoples of the region are quite insular.

Outreach Ideas

Portions of scripture are available in the Avar language, as well as other communication tools such as the Jesus film and Gospel recordings. Workers are needed to take these into the difficult Caucasus region.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There may be a few Christian believers among the Avar. Pray they will be accurately taught the ways of Christ, resting fully in the finished work of Christ on the cross, and trusting His Spirit for an abundant life.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for peace in the Caucasus region and especially between Muslims and Christians. Pray that Christianity will be seen as a relationship with Christ rather than as political or cultural in nature.

Scripture Focus

"All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations will worship before You." Psalm 22:27

Akha, Nuqui in Laos

El animismo y el culto a los antepasados ​​son las principales religiones entre los akha nuqui. Todas sus aldeas en Laos tiene su propio sacerdote (dzoe ma). Este sacerdote o chamán también es responsable de llevar a cabo todas las ceremonias, festivales y rituales religiosos. El sacerdote está relacionado principalmente con la gran potencia, Apoe Miyeh, del cual recibe su autoridad.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

"Akhazang" (el camino de la vida akha) ha sido el obstáculo más grande para que ellos no se conviertan en cristianos. Debido a que sus comunidades están extremadamente cerradas, los akha tienen miedo de las consecuencias de la ruptura con la tradición si siguen a Cristo.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Los que lleven el Evangelio deben hacer hincapié en que Dios quiere completar su cultura en vez de destruirla.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Puede que no haya creyentes entre los akha nuqui hoy, pero ore por los que surgirán. Ore para que no tengan nada que ver con las obras de las tinieblas, y para que vivan como hijos de la luz.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore para que sus hijos tengan buenas escuelas y que cada niño tenga la oportunidad de escuchar con precisión quién es Jesús, y lo que ha hecho por ellos.

Texto Bíblico

"Alégrense y gócense las naciones, Porque juzgarás los pueblos con equidad, Y pastorearás las naciones en la tierra." Salmos 67:4

Avar, Dagestani in 러시아

Avar 사람들은 카프카스 산맥에 위치한 다게스탄(공화국)에 사는 토착 민족 집단 중 가장 큰 편에 속합니다. 이들은 전통적인 가족적 가치들을 매우 헌신적으로 지킵니다. Avar 사회의 기본 구조는 마을 공동체입니다. 마을 의회와 연장자 자문단이 공동체를 지배합니다. 13세기부터 Avar 종족의 우세한 종교는 수니파 이슬람이었습니다. 5세기부터 12세기 사이에는 기독교(조지아 정교회)가 Avar 종족에게 소개되었습니다. 하지만 이슬람의 영향력이 더 오래 지속되면서 오늘날 Avar 종족은 거의 모든 이들이 무슬림입니다. 이들은 자신들의 종교를 강하게 붙들며, 전통 때문에 복음에 반응하는 것이 막혀 있는 것으로 보입니다.

선교 장애 요인

카프카스 지역은 지리적인 이유 때문에 접근이 힘들며 이 지역의 사람들은 상당히 배타적입니다.

전도 방법 제안

Avar 언어로 된 부분 성경이 사용가능하며, 구전 소통 도구인 예수 영화나 복음오디오녹음 등도 이들의 언어로 제작되어 있습니다. 이 어려운 카프카스 지역으로 이런 자료를 전달해줄 사역자들이 필요합니다.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

Avar 사람들 가운데에는 소수의 그리스도인 신자들이 있는 것으로 보입니다. 이들이 그리스도의 길에 대해 정확히 배울 수 있도록, 그리스도께서 십자가 위에서 마치신 사역에 온전히 의지할 수 있도록, 풍성한 삶을 위해 성령을 신뢰하도록 기도해 주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

카프카스 지역의 평화와 특별히 무슬림과 기독교인 간의 평화를 위해 기도해 주십시오. 기독교라는 것이 정치적이거나 문화적인 것이라기 보다는, 그리스도와의 관계를 의미하는 것으로 보여지도록 기도해 주십시오.

성경 말씀

땅의 모든 끝이 여호와를 기억하고 돌아오며 열방의 모든 족속이 주의 앞에 경배하리니 시편 22:27
