Hunan Iu Mien in China

Hunan Iu Mien in China

The Hunan Iu Mien people of southeast China have battled with the Han Chinese for centuries. They fled the lowlands inhabited by the Han to live and farm in the high mountains. The present Chinese government has maintained the policy of trying to turn the Iu Mien into Han Chinese. The Iu Mien have resisted these efforts and still speak their own language as their heart language. Most Iu Mien still practice their ancient religion of ancestor veneration, animism and Taoism.

Ministry Obstacles

The Hunan Iu Mien people live in remote mountains that are not easily accessible to Christ’s ambassadors. The government stands against efforts to spread the gospel, and the Iu Mien see Christianity as a foreign religion opposed to their traditions and culture.

Outreach Ideas

Chinese Christians can go to the Iu Mien and build redemptive relationships with them. Christians can show the JESUS Film, which is available in Iu Mien.

Scripture Focus

"Go therefore to the main roads and invite to the wedding feast as many as you find.’ And those servants went out into the roads and gathered all whom they found, both bad and good. So the wedding hall was filled with guests."  Matthew 22:9-10

Scripture Prayer

Pray that many in today’s people group to accept the Lord’s invitation to become part of His kingdom and join His great feast at the end of the age.

Prayer Focus

Pray that the Lord would inspire anointed Han Chinese Christian believers to pray for and go to the Hunan Iu Mien. Pray the Iu Mien would begin to read and study the recently translated Iu Mien Bible. Ask the Lord to raise up a church planting movement among the Iu Mien of China in this decade.
