Introduction / History

A Chinese proverb states, "A Chinese awake is not the equal of a Hui sleeping." The Hui people are known as astute businesspersons. They live across the nation of China and in seven other countries in Asia and the Middle East. A small group also resides in Kyrgyzstan.

By the middle of the seventh century, Arab and Persian traders and merchants traveled to China in search of riches. In addition, in the thirteenth century the Mongols turned people into mobile armies during their Central Asian conquests and sent them to China. These civilians were expected to settle down at various locations to farm while maintaining combat readiness. As artisans, scholars, officials, and religious leaders, they spread throughout China. These people are the ancestors of today's Hui.

Though most Hui people still live in various parts of China, some are in other countries like Kyrgyzstan.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Most Hui today make their living in trade, banking, commerce and agriculture.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Hui have been Muslims since the time of the Mongols in the 13th century. Islam is part of their cultural identity. It is much safter to be a Muslim in Kyrgyzstan than China. As far as we know, there are no Hui Christian believers in Kyrgyzstan.


What Are Their Needs?

Chinese Hui believers can go to Kyrgyzstan and form business partnerships with them. Many resources are available in Mandarin, the primary language of the Hui, including a complete Bible and the JESUS Film. The Hui can listen to Mandarin radio broadcasts.


Prayer Points

As far as we know, there are no believers among the Hui in Kyrgyzstan. Pray that God would soon open doors for Christian materials to reach Hui communities.

Ask God to mobilize the church in Kyrgyzstan toward reaching out to the Hui with the goal of bringing about a disciple making movement.

Pray for Hui hearts to be open to receiving the gift of eternal life in Jesus Christ.
