Chinese in Angola

Chinese in Angola

In the last couple of decades, thousands of construction workers, engineers, doctors, cooks and petroleum engineers have migrated from China to Angola. They are extracting oil and developing Angola's damaged infrastructure. Angola is one of China's largest suppliers of oil. The Chinese companies are using local materials, but hiring Chinese people, so this is not providing jobs for the Angolans. The Angolans resent this situation, especially since it also means higher prices for them. There has been a lot of crime against Chinese citizens and many Chinese are leaving Angola.

Ministry Obstacles

The Chinese workers are isolated from the largely Christian Angolan population. Animosity between the Chinese and the Angolans provides another barrier to the gospel.

Outreach Ideas

Angolan believers can extend a hand of friendship over meals. They can welcome the Chinese with food and music in a direct contrast to what people of the world do.

Scripture Focus

"Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; your judgments are like the great deep; man and beast you save, O LORD. How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings."  Psalm 36:5-7

Scripture Prayer

Pray for this people group to understand the vastness of the Lord’s faithfulness and righteousness. May they be drawn to Him.

Prayer Focus

Pray that Angolan Christians would help lead them to salvation. Pray that the Chinese would depend on Jesus Christ alone. Pray that Chinese believers would worship the same Lord with Angolan believers as an example of unity and love in a situation where there is sometimes hostility between the two groups. Pray for a disciple making movement to grow among the Chinese in Angola.
