Hakka Chinese in Cambodia

Hakka Chinese in Cambodia

Characteristically, the Hakkas have been dentists, shoemakers or Chinese medicine merchants. Today, many Hakka families have started the popular noodle shops that line city streets in Cambodia. Hakka noodles, or hakka mee, are yellow noodles topped with minced chicken or pork and condiments. Hakka food is so delicious that there are now Hakka Chinese restaurants spread throughout the West as well as East Asian countries.

Ministry Obstacles

There is an attitude among the Hakka that spirituality is flexible, and that Christianity is only for Westerners. The Hakka can easily stick with traditional religion and face a Christless eternity because they are unwilling to give him a chance to transform their hearts.

Outreach Ideas

Christian believers can become regular customers of Hakka food vendors during the slow hours. They can tell them about what Jesus can do to help their families prosper spiritually.

Scripture Focus

"And Jesus said to him, What do you want me to do for you? And the blind man said to him, Rabbi, let me recover my sight."  Mark 10:51

Scripture Prayer

Pray for the Lord to heal the spiritual blindness of today’s people group. Pray that these people see and recognize Jesus for who He truly is, the Light and Savior of the world.

Prayer Focus

Pray for the Lord to prosper the Hakka spiritually and economically, so they will know he is their true provider. Pray for the Lord to enable and thrust out loving workers to the Hakka Chinese in Cambodia. Pray for the Hakka to have receptive hearts to Christ. Pray for Hakka church planters to train others to plant more churches and make disciples.
