Itinerant Manggarai field workers take the first step in preparing a field for planting rice on the island of Flores in eastern Indonesia. They will pull the old rice plants and bury them in the mud where the plants will help fertilize the soil. Two weeks later, the field will be ready for planting a fresh crop of rice.

The Manggarai live in the flattest area on the island of Flores. Because no mountains or deep valleys are found there like the rest of the island, the Manggarai produce most of the island’s wet-field rice. With a population of nearly 600,000, the Manggarai are the largest unreached people group (UPG) in eastern Indonesia. IMB Photo

In Bangladesh, tea garden representatives live in estate-owned housing – mud homes with no electricity or running water. Virtually everything they own belongs to the tea estate. Representatives make between 52 and 64 cents per day. If they were to leave this life they’d leave with the clothes on their back and a few cents in their pockets, a Bangladeshi church planter says. It’s courage and confidence in Christ that brings this church planter to these tea gardens. There are 20 churches and 82 Christians that he knows of in the tea estates. IMB Photo
