Rom 3:24, NKJV
... being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,...

Pray that the Micha people will put off all other religions, and embrace a relationship with the only one who can offer grace and redemption.

Micha (Mee-chee) People

by CR

So Paul, standing before the council, addressed them as follows: “Men of Athens, I notice that you are very religious in every way…” (Acts 17:22, NLT)
China’s Micha people practice various religious beliefs adopted from their neighbors, including Daoism, Buddhism, and ancestor worship. Polytheistic beliefs have largely diminished among them, though their elderly still worship different spirits, including the village spirit believed to live in the biggest tree near their community.
The 32,000 Micha people live in southern China’s Yunnan Province. Today, most Micha work hard in agriculture, and they prefer to keep to themselves in their mountain community. However, many young Michas move to towns and cities to make more money, returning home for special occasions and festivals.
Despite the small presence of Three-Self Churches (government-approved) in their region, along with some Catholic influence, the unreached Micha are a relatively small and isolated people without a witness. There is no Bible translation in their language, Miqie. However, there is audio Bible teaching in Miqie through Global Recordings Network (GRN).

Pray that Chinese believers reach out to and intercede for the Micha people. Ask God to prepare Micha hearts, bringing His Word to them in their own language. Pray they listen to GRN teaching and that God’s Spirit penetrates the darkness of false religions, drawing the Micha to their true redeemer. May there soon be a disciple making movement among the Micha people that will transform their community into Christ’s likeness.
