Sogwo Arig in China

 Another needy lost people who must be discipled.
 

The Sogwo Arig are a Mongolian tribe living in the midst of countless small Tibetan clans in one of the most remote locations in the world. Today one of the few remaining Sogwo Arig cultural features is their Mongolian style of yurt. All Sogwo Arig are followers of either Tibetan Buddhism or Bon. They worship at crude sacrificial altars, constructed of yak dung piled about three feet high, upon which they regularly offer animal sacrifices to various gods and demons.

Ministry Obstacles
Evangelists will need to overcome severe weather, rugged terrain, linguistic and cultural barriers, and fierce packs of dogs which the Sogwo Arig have trained to attack strangers.

Outreach Ideas
Much prayer is needed to prepare the hearts of the Sogwo Arig people, accompanied by workers willing to establish friendships with these people. Gospel recordings will be helpful.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There may be no followers of Jesus among the Sogwo Arig at present, but pray for those the Lord will soon call to himself. Pray for the availability of Scripture and other resources to help them grow in the faith. Pray they will be renewed in the image of God in true righteousness and holiness.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray for the remotely located Sogwo Arig of China to soon be privileged to hear of Christ and what He has done. Pray the message comes to them clearly and accurately, in their mother tongue. Pray for several exposures to the gospel message, as it usually requires several in order to understand and believe.

Scripture Focus
“Let the nations be glad and sing for joy; For You will judge the peoples with uprightness and guide the nations on the earth.” Psalm 67:4
