Zhaba in China

The Zhaba are counted as part of the Tibetan nationality, although they speak a Qiangic language. Sexual promiscuity has long been rife among the Zhaba. They worship a wide variety of demons and ghosts. These influences date back to the pre-Buddhist Tibetan religion of Bon. They believe large demons live inside mountains, and so they offer frequent sacrifices to appease them. There are no known Christians among the Zhaba, although there are a few Tibetan Catholics farther west near Litang.

Ministry Obstacles

The Zhaba have been in bondage to evil spiritual forces for many generations. These bonds are not easily broken.

Outreach Ideas

Workers need to find ways to assist these people with their material and physical needs, as well as with spiritual needs.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Even though there are no known followers of Jesus among the Zhaba people today, pray that the Spirit of God would be even now preparing the people to receive the gospel with gladness.

Pray for the Entire People Group

The Zhaba lead hard lives. Workers seeking to reach them will need to help them physically and not just spiritually. Pray for greatly improved living conditions for the Zhaba.

Scripture Focus

"Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me." Matthew 25:40

Zhaba in China

Los Zhaba son tomados en cuenta como parte de la nacionalidad Tibetana, aunque hablan un idioma Qiangic. La promiscuidad sexual por mucho tiempo ha sido muy común entre los Zhaba. Adoran una variedad amplia de demonios y fantasmas. Estas influencias datan desde el tiempo de la religión tibetana pre-budista de Bon. Ellos creen que grandes demonios viven dentro de montañas, y por eso ofrecen sacrificios frecuentes para apaciguarlos. No hay cristianos conocidos entre los Zhaba, aunque hay unos cuantos tibetanos católicos más al oeste cerca de Litang.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

Los Zhaba han estado esclavizados por fuerzas espirituales malignas por muchas generaciones. Esta esclavitud no fácilmente se rompe.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Obreros necesitan encontrar maneras de asistir a esta gente en sus necesidades materiales y físicos, como también sus necesidades espirituales.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Aunque no se conoce de seguidores de Jesús entre el pueblo Zhaba hoy en día, ora que el Espíritu de Dios aun ahora está preparando esta gente para recibir el Evangelio con alegría.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Los Zhaba llevan vidas difíciles. Obreros buscando como alcanzarlos necesitarán ayudarlos físicamente y no solamente espiritualmente. Ore por condiciones de vida considerablemente mejoradas para los Zhaba.

Texto Bíblico

"Y respondiendo el Rey, les dirá: De cierto os digo que en cuanto lo hicisteis a uno de estos mis hermanos más pequeños, a mí lo hicisteis" Mateo 25:40

Zhaba in 중국

Zhaba인들은 비록 Qiangic언어를 사용하지만 티베트 사람들로 여겨집니다. Zhaba 사람들 가운데는 오래전부터 문란한 성문화가 있습니다. 그들은 다양한 악귀들과 정령들을 숭배합니다. 이것은 티벳 불교 이전에 있던 티베트 본 종교의 영향입니다. 산악지대 안에는 큰 악령들이 살고 있다고 믿으며, 이들을 달래기 위한 제물들을 자주 바치기도 합니다. 이들이 사는 곳의 서쪽인 Litang 지역에는 소수의 티벳 천주교인들이 있지만, Zhaba사람들 가운데 알려진 그리스도인은 하나도 없습니다.

선교 장애 요인

Zhaba 사람들은 여러 세대에 걸쳐 악령들에게 묶여 있습니다. 이 묶인 것이 쉽게 깨어지지는 않습니다.

전도 방법 제안

사역자들이 이들을 물질적으로, 육체적으로, 또한 영적으로 돕기 위한 방법들을 찾아야 합니다.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

Zhaba사람들 가운데 아직 예수님을 따르는 자들이 알려져 있지는 않지만, 하나님의 영께서 이들이 복음을 기쁨으로 받아들일 수 있는 준비를 시키시도록 기도해 주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

Zhaba사람들은 어려운 삶을 살고 있습니다. 사역자들이 이들의 영적인 필요뿐만 아니라 육체적인 필요도 도와야할것입니다. Zhaba사람들의 생활 환경이 개선되도록 기도해 주십시오.

성경 말씀

임금이 대답하여 이르시되 내가 진실로 너희에게 이르노니 너희가 여기 내 형제 중에 지극히 작은 자 하나에게 한 것이 곧 내게 한 것이니라 하시고 마태복음 25:40
