Amdo, Rongmahbrogpa in China

The peoples living on the Tibetan plateau of China are referred to as Tibetans; however, there are many subgroups. The two main branches are the Amdo and the Kham. Monks from India first brought Buddhism to China between the third and the first centuries B.C. All Buddhists believe that right thinking, ritual sacrifices, and self-denial will enable the soul to reach nirvana (eternal bliss) at death.

There are a few known Christian believers among this people group, pray they will lead holy lives, growing in grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Pray for the entire people group
