The Luoluopo are a sub-group of the Yi people cluster in China. Their name refers
to the "tiger-dragon" in their own language, a creature which they fear and
worship. The Luoluopo believe they descend from tigers.
• The Luoluopo were once a powerful people in the Southeastern region of China's
Yunnan province. Continual encroachment by Chinese settlers discplaced them from
the fertile areas in which they lived. Today the Luolopo have a generally low
self-esteem about themselves. Pray that they might find their true identity and
worth in God's Kingdom.
• Luoloupo young people are encouraged to be promiscuous with one another before
marriage, and even up until the birth of a young woman's first baby. Pray that
this practice might be replaced with Biblical principles of sexual purity and
righteousness before God.
• Although there are a handful of believers among the Luoluopo in several townships,
the result of Catholic missionary work a century ago, 98% of the Luoluopo tribe
have never heard the gospel. Pray for a move of the Holy Spirit to open doors for
evangelism in every community.
Heavenly Father, may your power visit the Luoluopo people and bring them true
freedom, hope and deliverance in Jesus.
