Daily Topic for July 31, 2017

Eph 2:7, NKJV
... that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

Make this your prayer also for the unreached peoples of India as we begin to pray for them next month.

Buyuan Jinuo (Boo-yooahn-Jee-nor) People

by KC

Even the neighbors of the Buyuan Jinuo People sing, “The strongest animal in the forest is the rhinoceros, the bravest people on the mountain are the Jinuo!”
About 75 years ago, a local government officer collected a tax from the Buyuan Jinuo people, and died on the way home. Thinking that he had been poisoned by the Jinuo people, the government forces mobilized to attack Buyuan Jinuo villages. They were in for a surprise; the Jinuo had mobilized other nearby tribes to defend them. Though the Buyuan Jinuo ultimately lost the battle, they won the respect of their neighbors.
In this true account, we see two armies mobilized for a particular task. But we have not seen an army of Christ’s ambassadors mobilized to take the gospel to the Buyuan Jinuo people. There have been some workers, or there would not be any believers among this people group. This people group is about two percent Christian, which is higher than any people group we have prayed for this month.

Will you pray today to see these few believers mobilized to take the gospel to every Buyuan Jinuo settlement, and beyond? Pray that there will soon be an army of Buyuan Jinuo people mobilized, not for war, but for taking the Name of Christ to their neighbors in Yunnan Province. Pray for massive mobilization to spread His fame to every people group in Yunnan Province, as we finish our month of prayer for China.
