Brief Profile

The Zotung Chin migrated to North America from the northwest state known as Chin in the country of Myanmar. They call themselves "Zo Mingphuin" from the early times while others called them "Zotung" during and after British rule.

Various factors are causing the Zotung Chin to become a dispersed people (e.g. natural disasters, government restrictions, desiring a better lifestyle, etc.).

They speak Zotung Chin, which is one of many Chin dialects.

Traditionally, the Chin peoples were animists. However, in the late 1800s, the first Christian missionaries arrived in the Chin State, and began sharing the message of Christianity with indigenous people. Due to the work of the Baptist Arthur E. Carson, their efforts were successful, and today the majority of Chin are Christians, with most belonging to Protestant denominations, especially Baptist. Many Chin people have served as evangelists and pastors, ministering in places such as the United States, Australia, Guam, and India.

Prayer Points

  • Pray God will work through and in the lives of the Zotung Chin to grow in their understanding Jesus Christ.
  • Pray that evangelical Zotung Chin will be light to the least reached peoples in North America.
