GUANGXI ZHUANG AUTONOMOUS REGION

CHALLENGES FOR PRAYER

1 The growth of Christians among the Thai-related Zhuang and also among the Han gives cause for praise! From 7,000 Christians in 1949 there are over 10 times that membership today — about half are Zhuang

2 The Zhuang have responded in the last decade through a concerted prayer and ministry effort for their evangelization

3 The Yao peoples total about 2.2m in the mountains of Guangxi
