Pray for Tibetians


•Population of Tibetan Peoples – 7,147,000
•Number of Tibetan People Groups – 134
•Number of Tibetan UPG’s – 117
•Restricted Nations with large Tibetan Populations – China, India, Nepal, and Bhutan

The Tibetan Plateau is located in west, southwest China and is home to many Tibetan people groups. However, Tibetan peoples can be found in large numbers in countries such as India, Nepal, and Bhutan while in smaller numbers in Bangladesh, Myanmar, and Pakistan. In 1959, there was a major role in the uprising against the Chinese government that led to the Dalai Lama’s departure from Tibet. All Tibetan people groups are devout followers of Buddhism. Work among the Tibetans has been happening for centuries but has been met with much resistance and conflict. Tibetans who come to faith in Christ can experience persecution from the society they live as well as family and friends. Despite such persecution, the church among a number of Tibetan people groups has persevered. However, Limited availability of Scripture and literacy of languages along with the importance placed Tibetan culture and rituals make it difficult for Tibetan believers to live a Godly life.
