Guanyingqiao Jiarong in China

Guanyingqiao Jiarong in China

To outsiders, the Guanyingqiao people look like Tibetans. However, the language they speak is not closely related to Tibetan. The Guanyingqiao live in a remote mountainous area of northwestern Sichuan Province in China seldom visited by others. Like Tibetans, they practice Buddhism and shamanism. The Guanyingqiao raise animals and grow crops in the short summers of the high mountains. Few, if any, have ever heard a clear gospel presentation.

Ministry Obstacles

There are limited roads to the region of Sichuan where the Guanyingqiao live. The Guanyingqiao have been Buddhists for centuries, and it is part of their core identity. By contrast, they see Christianity as a foreign religion opposed to their traditions and culture. There are no Christian resources available in the Guanyingqiao language of Lavrung.

Outreach Ideas

Han Chinese believers can go to the Guanyingqiao to set up businesses with them. The Han believers can help the Guanyingqiao with modern medicine and in setting up schools for their children.

Scripture Focus

"His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’"  Matthew 25:21

Scripture Prayer

Pray that many in this people group become good and faithful servants of the Master and celebrate with Him in the coming kingdom.

Prayer Focus

Pray that Christian resources, including a complete Bible, would be translated into the Lavrung language. Ask the Lord to send caring, Spirit-filled workers to the Guanyingqiao people. Pray for a hunger for spiritual truth among the Guanyingqiao. Pray that every Guanyingqiao would have the opportunity to hear the good news of Jesus Christ in a way they can understand.
