“This is American Idol Chinese style,” thought the visitor from America, as he watched the young men and women sing. Each contestant took turns singing a song. All of the competitors were members of the Xingping Lalu people group. The two winners were declared the most eligible for marriage.
The Xingping Lalu people have lived in China’s Yunnan Province for as long as anyone can remember.  Singing is this people group’s favorite activity. From centuries past traditional songs have been handed down from one generation to the next. And the winner will make the best husband… so they think.
This people group worships many gods and spirits. The Xingping Lalu live in fear of ghosts. The neighboring Hongjjn Tai people group has taken the message of salvation to this people group and have won 150 to become part of the bride of Christ. But 99 percent of the Xingping Lalu have yet to accept Christ as lord.
