"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 Unreached of the Day: Oroqen of China

Oroqen of China
The Oroqen population has been affected by rampant disease and violence during the twentieth century. A Russian invasion of the area in the mid-1600s, followed by the Japanese occupation in the 1930s and 1940s, drove the Oroqen deep into the mountains and forests of China's northern border regions. The Oroqen are great hunters and fishermen. Oroqen in some areas also raise reindeer. Today, due to the massive migration of Chinese to the northeast hinterlands, the Oroqen culture is being quickly assimilated. Shamanism is the dominant religion among the Oroqen. They believe in an intricate system of demons and spirits. The Oroqen worship certain animals, especially the bear and the tiger, which they believe are blood relatives.

Ministry Obstacles
No scripture is reported as available in the Oroqen language.

Outreach Ideas
Perhaps Han Chinese Christians will be given a desire to take Christ to the Oroqen. Pray they will overcome any hostility from this group which has a reputation for violence.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Because of their reputation for violence and drunkenness, the few efforts to evangelize the Oroqen have met with resistance. However, in 1995 the first ever breakthrough among the Oroqen occurred when 30 accepted Christ after hearing the Gospel from newly converted Daur believers in Heilongjiang Province. Please pray for these Christians.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray for the Oroqen tribe to desire peace and not violence. Pray they will hunger to know the Prince of Peace.

Scripture Focus
"Do you not say, 'There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest?' Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest." John 4:35
