"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 Unreached of the Day: 02/18/2012 (Saturday) - Sumbawa of Indonesia

Sumbawa of Indonesia
The Sumbawa (or Samawa) people group live on the island of Sumbawa in West Nusa Tenggara Province, and are mostly farmers. They are Muslim, but many Sumbawa professing Islam still rely on the advice and help of shamans, especially in times of crisis. They also believe in various spirits and genies, such as samar and bakek.

Ministry Obstacles
The Sumbawa worldview (Islam/Animism) makes it difficult for them to place their faith in the Son of God, Emmanuel.

Outreach Ideas
Indonesian Christians on adjacent islands may bring the Gospel message to the Submawa. Pray they will be given a desire to do this.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are a few believers among the Sumbawa. Pray they will be properly instructed in the faith, and that they may stand firm and hold to the teachings of Scripture.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Sumbawa will find improved markets for their agricultural products.

Scripture Focus
"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, 'Your God reigns!'" Isaiah 52:7
