Asian Pacific Rim Peoples
Unreached Peoples of Timor-Leste

(tee-more LESS-tay) - Timor-Leste is one of only two predominantly Catholic nations in Asia with 87% of the population claiming Catholicism. Just 2% of the population are evangelical, and while the Protestant church has seen slight growth, they are widely viewed with prejudice and suspicion. The physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the Timorese are great, but the power of Jesus is greater, and He is able to heal, restore, and save. There is a call and great need for Gospel-equipped Christian leaders in Timor-Leste, as workers are few and Christian resources almost non-existent. Pray for servants who are willing to risk all to proclaim the gospel of Christ.

Please pray that the Lord will open her heart to the truth and that she will truly acknowledge her unbelief and her need for a Savior.

Asian Pacific Rim Peoples
People of Pearl Island, Southeast Asia

Siah is a believer who came from a Muslim background. She has been worshiping Jesus in secret for several years. Recently, her family found out that she had converted to Christianity and felt their only choice was an honor killing. Siah's father tried to kill her with a sword, but her mother convinced him to let her live and instead keep her locked in her room. Her family is very influential in the community, so everyone looks the other way. Pray for her father to have dreams and visions and for the whole family to believe. Pray for Siah's faith to be strengthened in the face of persecution and rejection from those she loves most.

Sub-Saharan African Peoples
Ngoni of Tanzania

(n-GO-knee) - "Brothers, my heart's desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God's righteousness" (Romans 10:1-3 ESV). The Apostle Paul was referring here to his fellow countrymen, the Jews, regarding their attempt to be righteous before God by their own ability. These same words also describe the Ngoni of Tanzania. Many of them are zealous in following the traditions and laws of the church, but they cannot testify of a time in their life when they turned from their sins and believed in Jesus as Lord and Savior of their life. They have no assurance of having eternal life. They hope that their good deeds will be good enough to warrant acceptance by God to enter His eternal kingdom. Ask God to convict them of their sin of unbelief, of God's righteousness, and of the judgment to come and to draw them to His Son, Jesus, so that they may be counted righteous through faith in Him alone.

South Asian Peoples
Bhojpuri of South Asia

(bohj-POOR-ee) - Recently, during a visit to the Terai (lowland) region near the foothills of the Himalayas, some believers were holding a training event. At that event, a Bhojpuri-speaking Shaikh showed up. One month earlier, this formerly Muslim man had chosen to follow Jesus, and one week later, he followed in baptism. In the past month, he has led 14 relatives to the Lord. He now feels that the Lord is leading him to begin a church in his home. This man comes from an unengaged, unreached people group where there were previously no known followers of Jesus. Praise God for this man's life and testimony and the eternal impact he is making in the lives of those around him!

Pray that they will be drawn to read the New Testament to find out more about Jesus. Pray that they will come to know Him as Savior and desire to meet with others who love Him, too.

North African and Middle Eastern Peoples
Arab Tribes of Northern Africa

Among the Arab tribes, trauma is present in every single home, with abuse, divorce, drug use, lack of basic needs, unemployment, sickness, etc. Sabeeha and Gameela are no exception. These two sisters-in-law have shared bits and pieces of their painful experiences in recent months as they have heard various stories from the Word. An opportunity to participate in a trauma healing group is now available to them, and they are extremely excited. This healing group will use Bible stories to encourage those who are hurting and provide opportunities for participants to work through their own pain in a way that offers hope. Pray for Sabeeha and Gameela as they meet with two believers in the coming months. Pray that the stories they hear will be used by the Spirit to turn their hearts to Jesus.
