Each week we at Basswood pray for an unreached people group. This week we are praying for the Gelao people of China.
Primary Religion: Ethnic Religions
The follow information was taken from Joshua Project. If you would like to read the whole article, you can find that webpage here. Here are a few lines from the article that seemed particularly helpful when praying.
- The Gelao are primarily ancestor worshipers. They also worship the gods of giant trees, of mountains, of sky and earth, cows, etc.
- This people group is .09% Evangelical Christian.
- Considering the primary language is Mandarin, the Gelao people have a copy of the Scriptures in their language. You can follow the link above and listen to the audio version of the New Testament. This may be a helpful tool to use when introducing this people group to your children in family worship.
- Little fruit remains from the work of previous missionaries.
