Eph 2:10, NKJV
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Thank the Lord that He created you to do good works for His glory, not in “exchange” for salvation. Thank Him for the privilege of giving you the good works of praying for people like the Popei who have no chance for eternal life apart from Christ.

Popei (Poh-pay) People

by CMW

If you have been praying through the GPD for many years, you will have noticed that we pay close attention to Yunnan Province, which has by far the highest number of unreached people groups. This province attracts many tourists to its spectacular natural scenery—rivers, lakes, gorges, and snow-capped mountains. This province boasts over 18,000 plant species.
Tucked away in the high mountains of Yunnan live the Popei people. They inhabit one of the least evangelized regions in the most unreached province of China! They are hidden away by mountains and rivers. Until recently, access was possible only by foot or on horseback, but roads now connect the Popei to the outside world.
The Popei number about 6,000 and they live exclusively in China. They are also known by their Chinese name, “Shui Yi” or “Water Yi.” They observe traditional festivals such as the Garment Contest Festival. They also celebrate a Get-Together of Princes Festival, in which they create an edible “prince” which they bake and eat. The Popei speak Lolopo, but no Scripture is available in Lolopo, and no Christians are known among the Popei.

Please pray for God to give the Popei a curiosity about the One who created their snow-capped mountains. Ask God to give these people a hunger for the sunshine of his love.—CMW
