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.
