Communities where He is least known

A Community in West Kalimantan

The gospel has been spread consistently by missionaries for more than half a century in West Kalimantan, resulting in large denominations among some ethnic communities. However, one community, numbering 1.5 million people, has less than 1% following Jesus. West Kalimantan has more than fifteen theological schools, 120 church denominations, and more than 4,000 religious workers, yet less than 1% of all Christians are reaching this large community. There are less than 20 people actively focused on sharing the gospel with them.  

 Those who share the gospel with them must understand that this group of people:

■  identifies with Islam and is not open to other faiths.

■ embraces folk tales and mystical things.

■ is difficult for an outsider to influence, as the population lives in tightly-knit families and communities. It takes a long time to be accepted into the community.

■ follows their own teachings and practices closely, and must be approached tactfully with new ideas.

■ are usually open to those with whom they have cultivated a certain level of relationship.
