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

 Unreached of the Day: Dondo of Indonesia

Dondo of Indonesia
Generally, the Dondo prefer to live along the riverbank in the jungle. The principle livelihoods of the Dondo are farming and fishing. In the past, Dondo was a sultanate. The Dondo sultan and his nobles and aides were chosen through their ancestral lines. During those times, there were four classes among the people: royalty, nobility, commoners, and slaves. The Dondo have embraced Islam for many generations. However, many Dondo continue to practice animism. Historically, the Dondo kept the body of a deceased family member inside a sago palm trunk that had been scraped out. The family members bid farewell to the spirit of the deceased by sleeping around the grave for several days.

Ministry Obstacles
Scripture is not available in the Dondo language, nor are other resources such as the Jesus film.

Outreach Ideas
Please pray for Gospel radio to be widely available throughout Indonesia. Pray that broadcasts in the Dondo language will be included.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are probably no followers of Jesus among the Dondo people at the present time. However, their near neighbors, the Gorontalo, have many believers who could share the gospel with the Dondo. Pray they will fulfil the Great Commission in this way.

Pray for the entire people group
Agricultural training and help in the utilization of appropriate technology would help the Dondo increase their harvests. They also need significant help in improving the system of formal education in their area.

Scripture Focus
"This gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations and then the end will come." Matthew 24:14
