Gal 3:14, NKJV
... that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Pray that the blessings of Abraham and his seed will soon be extended to the Qanu people.

Qanu (Ga-noo) People

by BK

To the locals, the Quanu people are sometimes known as the “Miao with Combs in Their Hair.” Included yet different, the Qanu people are considered part of the Miao cluster of people groups, though they have their own distinct ethnic identity. These people are primarily agricultural, with some families raising livestock as well. They have no written language. This has caused much anguish amongst the Qanu for quite some time.
The Quanu are animists, worshiping the spirits that inhabit the world. Of particular note is the spirit of water, which is held in great fear by the Qanu.
Though there were Protestant missionaries in the area prior to the rise of communism, few worked in the particular region inhabited by the Qanu. These missionaries are remembered well by the general public as servants, self-sacrificing, and laboring with the love of God. The communist authorities, however, paint them as imperialists spreading propaganda to spread dissension, with the intent to exploit the people.

Pray that the Quanu people would encounter the love of the Father through indigenous missionaries and evangelists. Pray that they would be open to receiving the good news of the kingdom of God, and to trade their fear of the spirits for the love and peace of Christ. Pray that communism would be unable to keep the gospel quiet, and that Christ’s light would shine brightly in the darkness.
