Saturday, (Sept 2) – Pray for the World: The Qiang ethnic minority group lives mainly in the northern part of Sichuan in southwestern China. About 1/3 of the people died during the 2008 earthquake. The majority of the Qiang are Buddhists. As of today, there are estimated to be less than a hundred Christians living in this region. There are only five small Qiang house churches.
