Communities where Christ is least known

Muslims in the Western Cape

Hindus in KwaZulu-Natal Province

According to statistics, South Africa has the largest number of Indians residing outside of India. Hinduism is the main religion of these people, and very few Christian workers serve amongst them.

Many new churches are springing up in South Africa, but there is a trend in these churches toward false teaching – a blend of Christian and African religious practices – that is leading many people astray.

Prayers

Pray for workers to take the gospel to the least reached, including children, youth, young adults, and Muslims, and to engage in effective ministry amongst them.

3

Pray for the churches of South Africa to seek reconciliation and desire multi-cultural congregations.

4

Pray for teachers to come alongside churches and schools to train up leaders to have a deeper understanding of the Scriptures.

5

Pray for deeper understanding of God’s Word and a spirit of oneness amongst staff, volunteers, and missionaries in SIM.
