Hmong Njua of Myanmar (Burma)

Introduction / History
As a result of the numerous wars waged against the Hmong during the Qing Dynasty, most of the survivors dispersed in several directions. The Hmong in Vietnam and Laos migrated from China at the end of the 1700s and the beginning of the 1800s. Due to geographical separation ... the two Hmong Njua groups [China and Vietnam] have no extensive sociocultural contact and do not consider each other to belong to the same group.

Where are they located?
There are Njua Hmong people in China, Vietnam, Laos, and Myanmar. The name is confusing; there are two different people groups by the same name.

What are their lives like?
There are several ways for young Hmong Njua people to show their admiration for each other. In some areas, lovers give each other fruit tree saplings which they plant together. For years to come they go into the woods together and tend to their growing trees.

What are their beliefs?
Most Hmong Njua are animists. They are susceptible to being deceived by strong influential figures. One of their legends tells of a Hmong savior who will come and lead them into their own land where they will be left alone in peace. In recent years thousands of Hmong in Vietnam have followed a miracle-working leader who claims to be the Hmong savior.

What are their needs?
The Njua Hmong people need to put their faith in Jesus Christ, not in any false saviors.

Prayer Points
* Pray for the Holy Spirit to send dreams and visions to Njua Hmong leaders that will give them the willingness to allow believers to enter their communities.
* Pray for a spiritual hunger that will lead to a church planting movement in every Njua Hmong village.
* Pray for a disciple making movement to emerge among the Njua Hmong people.
