Miao tribal believers

Missions-Minded in China

This group of Miao tribal believers was so eager to attend a missions society conference that they walked two hours each way across rocky, mountainous terrain. Held in a government-registered church in the Yunnan Province, the conference celebrated the work of native missionaries who are carrying the gospel to ethnic minority groups like the Miao. Christian Aid supports a Bible school that has five campuses in the province and trains students representing over 10 different minorities to become missionaries and church leaders. Some of the graduates have formed mission boards and mission-sending agencies, and they have set up missionary training centers to expand the outreach to minority peoples living in southwestern China.
