You’d be forgiven for thinking that this image, embellished with an embroidered vest and drying corn, depicts a scene in South America. In fact, this man belongs to the Hani people who live in southern China near the border with Viet Nam. Approximately 750 thousand people belong to the Hani language community, which is considered a minority in the vast nation of China. Since they speak a language totally different to Chinese, the literacy rate is low and they have no Scriptures available to them. The Chinese government has recognized that the Hani have the lowest quality of life of all the official Chinese minority groups. Please pray for the Hani people to have access to God’s message.
