Psalms 119:45, NLT
I will walk in freedom, for I have devoted myself to your commandments.

Pray for the Dungan people to find freedom in obedience to the King of kings and Lord of lords.

Dungan People in Kazakhstan

by BK

Chinese, Muslim, and Russian – a mixture of these cultures might make your head spin! The Dungan people live in Kazakhstan, formerly part of the USSR, located on the north-western Chinese border. The Dungan people originated in China, migrating to Kazakhstan in the 19th century.
The Dungans are primarily farmers, living on community farms where everyone plays a part. The farms are the center of Dungan villages, though they more closely resemble small cities. Each is complete with electricity, plumbing, and cooking gas as well as schools, nurseries, general stores, a hospital, a post office, and more. Those Dungans that do not live on the farms themselves can be found in comfortable extended-family homes. Due to their easy access to meat and vegetables, the Dungan people are considered to be among the wealthier Muslim ethnic groups in China.
Sunni Islam is the primary religion of the Dungan people. The older Dungans are strict adherents, though the younger people tend to forgo religion, remaining indifferent until middle adulthood. The Dungan people have yet to receive significant exposure to the gospel.

Pray that the Dungans of Kazakhstan would be introduced to the good news of the Kingdom of God. Pray that the Lord would show himself to the Dungan people in dreams and visions, and that workers would be sent into the fields. Pray for the Holy Spirit to direct and empower work amongst the Dungans that is developing in other locations.
