The Hui of China
The Hui of China were our prayer focus for Secret Church 13. As we gathered, we focused our attention on these minority peoples, specifically Chinese Muslims. More than 24 million Muslims live across China, 13 million of whom identify themselves ethnically as Hui, Salar, or Dongxiang. Since the 1800s, Christians have intentionally planted their lives among the Hui, yet today there are still fewer than a thousand followers of Christ. The few Hui believers that do exist experience pressure and persecution primarily from their families and communities. As a result, church planting among Chinese Muslims is difficult and complex, and the workers are few. God is at work among the Hui. Please continue to pray for God's Spirit to move among this people group and open their eyes and hearts to salvation through Christ.
