  Unreached of the Day: Lampung Way Kanan of Indonesia

Lampung Way Kanan of Indonesia
The Lampung Way Kanan is a small group with a strong cultural structure that is distinct within the larger Lampung cluster. Family ties among the Way Kanan are very strong and the Way Kanan clans use a system of consensus for resolving issues amongst themselves. They mostly live in remote areas because the main highways don't run through their villages. The Lampung Way Kanan people hold strongly to Islam and forbid conversion to other religions. As a result, there are no Way Kanan people who profess any other religion. The principle of religious homogeneity is very strong. Marriage with people from other faiths is forbidden.

Ministry Obstacles
These people are strongly committed to Islam, and have been for generations.

Outreach Ideas
Compared to other Lampung groups, the Way Kanan are the farthest behind economically. Therefore, working together with the people to improve their local economy would be very meaningful to these people.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are no known followers of Jesus among the Lampung Way Kanan people. However, please pray for those who will soon come to Christ. They will need teachers and pastors to help them, and they will need scripture in their languages.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray they will find ways to improve coffee and pepper production, which are main sources of income.

Scripture Focus
"For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea." Habakkuk 2:14
