Laowu in China

The Laowu believe a complex hierarchy of spirits guide and control their lives. They also consider it important to worship their ancestors. Laowu marriages are traditionally arranged through a matchmaker. A shaman is consulted. If the horoscopes of both parties are agreeable and if the parents on both sides give their consent, the two may become engaged.

Ministry Obstacles
The Laowu devotion to shamans and spirits will not be easy to overcome.

Outreach Ideas
Pray for a movement to Jesus to multiply among Laowu families and communities.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There is no known Christian presence among the Laowu people in China. However, please pray for the followers of Christ that will soon develop within this people group. Pray the Lord will prepare excellent pastors and teachers for them.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Laowu will be released from devotion to created things to know and worship the creator God.

Scripture Focus
"How then shall they call upon Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?" Romans 10:14-15
