The Hmong people are found throughout North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. They have their own culture and traditional beliefs which make them a unique ethnic group in the world. The Hmong population worldwide is about 12 million. Most of the people who live in China and Southeast Asia are agricultural and self-sufficient people. Most remain poor. Those who live in North America, Canada, France and Australia have access to better education and they have greater opportunities.
All of the Hmong in the world share the same traditional beliefs – Animism. They believe that everything has a spirit. Some of the spirits are good and some are evil. They call on the good spirits and the spirits of their deceased ancestors to help them in time of need. They practice shamanism and animal sacrifices. The Hmong religion has no heaven or hell; all the deceased are going to the same place where their ancestors had gone before them. Although they don’t acknowledge or know it, they are living under the control of the devil’s evil power and influence. Their religion has no Savior to rescue them; animal sacrifices are the solution for their temporal crisis and re-incarnation has become their quest for eternal life.
It is always on December 25th. We do not know when Jesus was born. However, the Church chose this date to replace some of the ancient festivals that were celebrated in the Roman empire. Christmas is, of course, the celebration of Jesus’ birth. The Christmas season lasts 12 days.
THEY NEED THE GOSPEL
Most of the Hmong people in the world are not Christian. Unless they hear the Gospel, they will suffer eternal damnation in hell. God loves these people, and Jesus died for their sins. They need to hear the Gospel of Christ. With God’s help, the Hmong Mission Society intends to reach out with the Gospel to all the Hmong people in the world. Hmong Mission Society is doing ministry in the United States and Asia. Will you help us bring the Gospel to these people?
