 Unreached of the Day: Campalagian of Indonesia

Campalagian of Indonesia
The language and culture of the Campalagian are heavily influenced by their more populous and powerful neighbors, the Toraja and the Bugis. The Campalagian work as farmers, fishermen, and traders. Campalagian farmers typically raise water buffalo, goats, cattle, and chicken. Fishermen are known as pakkaja. The tools used in their trade distinguish them: pameng use hooks and lines, pa'bagang use fishing platforms, pajala use nets, and pa'belle use special traps made of long nets. Marriage among the Campalagian occurs entirely under the direction of the parents, including the selection of a spouse. Almost every Campalagian person self-identifies as a follower of Islam. Various elements of Islamic culture are so integrated into traditional local culture that it is difficult to separate the two. It is very hard for a Campalagian person to imagine that another Campalagian person would be something other than Muslim.

Ministry Obstacles
The teachings and practice of Islam are so intertwined with the customs of this people that it seems almost impossible to separate them.

Outreach Ideas
There are many followers of Jesus in Indonesia today, in other tribes. Pray that some of these will see their opportunity to take the good news of Jesus to the Campalagian community.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Please pray for those Campalagian who identify themselves as Christians. Pray they will learn to confess sin quickly and live lives that honor the Lord in every way.

Pray for the entire people group
The Campalagian need help to improve the marketing and selling of produce from their farming and fishing industries. Infrastructure is needed, particularly in the development of good land and sea transportation. The Campalagian region needs more teachers as well as the building of new schools and the repair of existing schools.

Scripture Focus
"The time is coming to gather all nations and tongues. And they shall come and see My glory." Isaiah 66:18
