Xiangcheng of China

Country: China
People: Xiangcheng
Population: 13,000
World Population: 13,000
Main Language: Qiang, Northern
Main Religion: Buddihism
Bible: None
Status: Unreached
Christ-Followers: Few, less than 2%
Persecution level: 16  (1=highest)

Customs
The Xiangcheng build beautiful houses, which have white rocks on the roofs like those of the Qiang people. Xiangcheng homes are square-shaped, two stories, with colorful decorations around the window frames. They are very different from the houses of their neighbors, the Khampa.

Religion
The Xiangcheng are zealous believers in Tibetan Buddhism. Their beliefs form a large part of their identity as a people. There are numerous Buddhist temples and pagodas throughout the region.

Christianity
The Xiangcheng are one of the most untouched people groups in China. Few – perhaps none – have ever heard of Jesus Christ. There are no Christian communities in the region and no gospel literature or recordings in their language. There has been no history of missionary work in the vicinity of this hidden location.

Prayer
Lord, You are the beginning and the end, the Alpha and Omega, and there is nothing hidden from Your sight. You are the wisest counsellor of all. I thank You for Your promise, that You give wisdom to those who ask. I’m asking now for Your servants working with the Xiangcheng of China that you would give them the wisdom they need today. Fill them with heavenly wisdom that is pure, peace-loving, and considerate. Reveal to them the divine strategies they need to navigate the cultural issues they are facing with the Xiangcheng of China. Inspire them with creative solutions to the political and religious challenges that hold back the Gospel among the Xiangcheng of China. Lord, release our wisdom and light the path before them to penetrate this gourd with the truth of Your love.

Arab, Saudi-Najdi of Saudi Arabia

Country: Saudi Arabia
People:  Arab, Saudi – Najdi
Population: 11,969,000
World Population: 15, 352,000
Main Language:  Arabic Najdi
Main Religion: Islam
Bible: None
Status: Unreached
Christ-Followers: Less than 2%

What are their beliefs?
Almost all of the Bedouin in Jordan are Sunni Muslims. Islam is based on the teachings of the prophet, Mohammed. The Koran (“holy book” of Islam) was supposedly given to Mohammed by the angel Gabriel. Islam is a religion of works that is centered on five basic “pillars.”
(1) A Muslim must affirm that “there is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet.”
(2) Five times a day he must pray while facing Mecca.
(3) He must give alms generously.
(4) He must fast during Ramadan, the ninth month of the Muslim year.
(5) He must try to make at least one pilgrimage to Mecca in his lifetime.
Islam has greatly influenced the lives of the Bedouin. For example, to preserve their people, the Bedouin are only allowed to marry those inside their own group. Also, the society is patrilineal, which means that inheritances are passed down through the males.

What are their needs?
According to Islamic law, a Muslim who professes faith in Jesus Christ could be put to death. Perhaps this explains why there are only a few known Bedouin believers in Jordan at the present time. Evangelization efforts among the Bedouin are challenging due to the harsh and unsettled nature of their lifestyle. Missionaries who are able to endure the severe conditions of the Negev Desert are needed.

Prayer Points
* Ask the Lord to call people who are willing to reach out and share the love of Christ with them.
* Pray that God will raise up faithful intercessors who will stand in the gap for the Bedouin.
* Ask God to strengthen, encourage, and protect the few known Christian Bedouin living in Jordan.
* Pray their traditional Muslim culture will soften, creating open doors for the Gospel to be preached among them.
* Ask the Holy Spirit to open the hearts of the Bedouin Arab towards Christians so that they will be receptive to the Gospel.
* Pray that God will reveal Himself to them through dreams and visions.
* Ask the Lord to raise up strong local churches among the Bedouin.
* Pray for translation of the Bible to begin in this people group’s primary language.
* Pray for the availability of the Jesus Film in the primary language of this people.
