2 Cor 2:14, NKJV
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.

Pray for God to disperse the fragrance of Christ to the Pingdi people.

Pingdi (Ping-dee) Yao People

by KC

Are the Pingdi Yao people close to finding God or are they far from Him? That depends on how you look at the situation.
They live in a northern section of Guangxi Province that borders Hunan and Guangdong, two other Chinese provinces. Their area is rarely visited by outsiders, so they have almost no interactions with other people groups. With a population of a little over one million, the Pingdi Yao people have only 400 Christians. They have no Bible, JESUS Film, or even gospel recordings in their language. But these resources are available in similar languages of other Yao peoples.
Like other Yao peoples, the Pingdi believe in a god of creation, whom they call Tin Zay. He lives in heaven, and he’s a holy god. But at one time, they crossed a sea, and lost track of this god.  Like many other peoples around the world, they have a legend about a great flood that wiped out human kind.
There is potential for them to find the Lord, and they do not seem to have a strong set of their own beliefs. Will the Pingdi people be able to find the Lord without someone going to them?

Pray that the Pingdi Yao people will knock, seek, and find the true God of creation. Pray that believers from other parts of China will take them the good news, and they will respond by producing their own Bible, JESUS Film, and radio broadcasts.—KC
