Dong, Southern in China

The Dong love to stage bullfights. Every Dong village raises its own bull. "As the bulls lock horns and clash and strain to topple each other, the Dong cheer on their favorite beasts and toast them in fiery mao tai [whisky]." The Dong are a highly animistic people who worship a host of demons and gods. They make annual offerings to the spirits of their village, homes, and crops. Ancestral altars are also found in the main room of most homes.

Ministry Obstacles

Knowing and resting in Christ requires faith, and may be especially difficult for people long bound by fear of spirits.

Outreach Ideas

Perhaps the current followers of Christ among this people will become strong enough to carry the good news of Jesus to all the Dong community. Pray for this.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

The China Inland Mission commenced work among the Dong around 1910. In the 1930s missionaries from Liuzhou in Guangxi traveled to northern Guangxi and won 80 Southern Dong to Christ near Fuluh Township. In 1998 one ministry led several of this group to Christ. They returned to their village and started a house fellowship of 40 people. Pray for the growth of these believers, in maturity and in numbers.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Southern Dong will be delivered from the fear of spirits.

Scripture Focus

"But indeed, as I live, all the earth will be filled with the glory of the Lord." Numbers 14:21

Dong, Sur in China

A los dong les encantan las corridas de toros. Cada aldea dong cría su propio toro. "Mientras los toros chocan sus cuernos y luchan por derrocarse el uno al otro, los dong aclaman a sus bestias favoritas y hacen brindis con el ardiente mao tai [whisky]." Los dong son una etnia muy supersticiosa que adora a una multitud de dioses y demonios. Hacen ofrendas anuales a los espíritus de su pueblo, sus casas y sus cultivos. También se pueden encontrar altares ancestrales en la sala principal de la mayoría de los hogares.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

Conocer a Cristo y confiar en Él requiere de fe, y puede ser especialmente difícil para esta etnia que siempre ha sido atada por el temor de los espíritus.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Tal vez los seguidores actuales de Cristo en medio de esta etnia se vuelvan lo suficientemente fuerte como para llevar la buenas nuevas de Jesús a toda la comunidad dong. Ore por esto.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

La Misión al Interior de la China (hoy, OMF) comenzó a trabajar entre los dong en 1910. En la década de 1930 los misioneros de Liuzhou, en Guangxi, viajaron al norte de Guangxi y 80 dong sur vinieron a Cristo cerca del municipio de Fuluh. En 1998, un ministerio pudo ver a varios de este grupo venir a Cristo. Regresaron a su pueblo y comenzaron una iglesia en casa de 40 personas. Ore por el crecimiento en la madurez y en número de estos creyentes.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore para que los dong sur sean rescatados de la tiranía de la superstición.

Texto Bíblico

"Mas tan ciertamente como vivo yo, y mi gloria llena toda la tierra." Números 14:21

Dong, Southern in 중국

Dong 종족은 소싸움을 즐겨봅니다. 모든 Dong 마을에서는 황소를 키웁니다. "황소들이 뿔을 맞대고 상대편을 쓰러뜨리려 억센 힘을 과시하는 옆에서, Dong 부족들은 선호하는 황소를 응원하며 마오타이주를 따르며 건배합니다" 이들 Dong 부족은 매우 미신적으로, 다수의 악마와 신들을 숭배합니다. 그들의 마을, 가정, 작황의 영(spirit)들에게 매년 제사를 드립니다. 대부분 가정의 안방에 조상 대대로 내려오는 제단이 있습니다.

선교 장애 요인

그리스도를 알고 그 안에 거한다는 것은 믿음이 필요하며, 하늘의 영들에 대한 두려움으로 사로잡힌 사람들에게는 특히 어려울 수 있습니다.

전도 방법 제안

이 부족 안에서 그리스도를 따르는 사람들이 더욱 강해져서 모든 Dong 종족에게 예수님의 좋은 소식을 전할 수 있을 것입니다. 이것을 위해 기도합시다.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

중국 내지 선교회(China Inland Mission)는 1910년경부터 Dong 종족 가운데에서 사역하고 있습니다. 1930년대에는 Liuzhou와 Guangxi 지역의 선교사들이 북쪽 Guangxi를 여행하며 Fuluh 마을 근처에서 80명의 남부 Dong 사람들을 얻었습니다. 1998년에는 한 선교사가 이들 중 일부를 그리스도께 인도했습니다. 이들은 마을로 돌아가서 40명 정도의 가정 교회를 시작했습니다. 이들 신자들의 숫자와 성숙도의 성장을 위해 기도합시다.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

남부 Dong 종족이 미신의 폭정에서 구원받을 수 있도록 기도합시다.

성경 말씀

그러나 진실로 나의 사는 것과 여호와의 영광이 온 세계에 충만할 것으로 맹세하노니 민수기 14:21
