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

 Unreached of the Day: Bolango of Indonesia

Bolango of Indonesia
The Bolango are Gorontalo people who have wandered to an area in North Sulawesi province then married with the Bolaang people who were native to that area. The resulting union between these two peoples created a merger of languages and a mixing of cultures which resulted in something different than either the Bolaang or the Gorotalo originally had. The Bolango area used to be quite backward. However, now, with the development of the Southern highway as an alternative route between North Sulawesi and Gorontalo, economic development has been stimulated. The Bolango people are majority Muslim. There has yet to be found a Bolango person who has embraced any other religion. Not many non-Muslims live in the Bolango area.

Ministry Obstacles
The Bolango have been Muslims for generations, and take pride in their belief system. It does much to establish their identity, and would be quite painful to change.

Outreach Ideas
Pray that believers in Indonesia will become aware of the Bolango, their need for improvement in forestation and their great need for the gospel.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Even though there are no known followers of Jesus among the Bolango people today, pray for those who will soon come to saving faith. Pray their faith will be founded on the rock of Jesus and his teachings, not wavering.

Pray for the entire people group
Illegal logging in the Bolango area is the cause of floods which damage bridges and roads due to the volume of sand, earth, and stone carried by the flood waters. If the damage to the forest continues to worsen, the surrounding homes will be threatened as well.

Scripture Focus
"And to Him was given dominion, Glory and a kingdom, That all the peoples, nations, and men of every language Might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion Which will not pass away; And His kingdom is one Which will not be destroyed." Daniel 7:14
