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

 Unreached of the Day: Kaur of Indonesia

Kaur of Indonesia
The Kaur are one of the original peoples of Bengkulu Province. Most Kaur villages are located in groups along the banks of small rivers in this area. One unique feature of Kaur houses is that they are all painted blue and white. Chickens, ducks, and cows roam freely in the villages. The older generation had families with an average of thirteen children, but because of the government-sponsored, family-planning program, families currently have only three children on average. The Kaur people have been Sunni Syafi'I Muslims since the 17th century. Like other Malays they observe religious ceremonies with a communal meal (sedekah) to celebrate a birth, give thanks for a harvest, ask for rain, commemorate a death, and ward off evil spirits.

Ministry Obstacles
No scripture or other Christian resources are available in the primary language of the Kaur.

Outreach Ideas
The nearest group with a significant number of believers is the tiny Engganese group on Enggano Island. Could they catch a vision to reach the Kaur on the mainland?

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are no known Christians today among the Kaur. Pray the Lord will soon stir many hearts to seek a way to find forgiveness for their sin, and at the proper time, reveal to them that a Savior has been provided.

Pray for the entire people group
Currently, the Kaur need better technology in order to increase agricultural production so they can produce enough food for their own consumption as well as for trade. A few people have become fishermen using motorboats and their income is considered quite high.

Scripture Focus
"But indeed, as I live, all the earth will be filled with the glory of the Lord." Numbers 14:21
