Peoples of Southern Sumatra, Indonesia

(soo-MAH-trah) – It is not common in their culture to remain single beyond mid-late 20s, but Jim and Julie met each other later in life. They are both local believers, and after some time dating, decided it was time to start planning their wedding. Please pray for their wedding this month and for their new lives as newlyweds. Please pray that they will embrace the vision that the Lord gives of marriage being a picture of His love for the Church. Pray they will begin their new life together, striving to glorify God in all that they do. Marriages in their culture are often broken and full of hurt. Please pray that Jim and Julie’s marriage will be a light that shines bright to those around them!
