Sichuan Province, China

The Sichuan Province in China is an officially adopted focus area for Grace Chapel. God has used those of us at Grace Chapel to do plenty for the past decade to make a difference in the lives of His people. From building schools to training the locals how to harvest clean water, we are proud to be a part of God’s work on the ground in Southwest China.

The people of Sichuan Province need your prayers!

Prayer is the most effective way to show support and intervene on behalf of others. It is more potent than any dollar sent or act done. Despite being one of the easiest things to do, prayer is a very difficult thing to commit to doing regularly.

Philippians 4:6-7 says,

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

“Don’t pray when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it. A man is powerful on his knees.” ~ Corrie Ten Boom

About the People Group

The Chinese government recognizes 56 minority people groups. The students are included in what is known as the Yi minority group. The traditional language of the group is called Yi and it is completely different from Mandarin Chinese that is the most common language spoken by the majority Han Chinese. Many speak only Yi and cannot read either Yi or Mandarin.

There are about 6 million living in the mountains of southern Sichuan and northern Yunnan province in Southwest China. They are primarily subsistence farmers and live on an income of less than the equivalent of 200 US dollars per year. Some men are migrant workers and may only return to their homes once a year. Others may find employment in surrounding towns, but unemployment for young men is very high.

They were a fiercly independent people and were slave owners until being defeated in battle by the Chinese Army in 1955.

They love their music and dance!
