Communities where He is least known

Malay

The Malay of Peninsular Malaysia make up the majority of the Malay people in Malaysia, Brunei, and Singapore. They find much pride in their cultural heritage, place great emphasis on family and community dependence, and are seen in many levels of society. Urban Malay are well-educated and hold white-collar or government positions, while rural Malay may or may not pursue higher learning and typically occupy jobs such as farming, trading, and fishing.

Islam was brought to Malaysia by Arabic and Indian traders many centuries ago, and the Malay people have embraced and now ardently follow the Islamic faith. All Malay people are considered Islamic, although levels of devotion to the religion are varied; even those who nominally follow Islam participate in the fasting month.

The affluent Malay will go on the pilgrimage to Mecca at least once, if not several times, during their lifetime. A divergence from Islam is the prevalence of bomohs (folk religion shamans) in Malay spiritual life. Although Islam forbids the use of such a person, many Malay of Peninsular Malaysia will seek the services of a bomoh in order to receive a blessing or a cure, or in order to curse someone or inflict revenge.

Pray that the true Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ, may be revealed to the Malay people. Pray that the Word of God might transform the hearts and minds of the Malay people that they may be reconciled with God.

4

Pray for partners in ministry with whom we can effectively serve to build the Church.

5

Pray for God to raise up effective new leaders who will guide the team with godly wisdom.


Stories from this Country

Cultivating a generous spirit

Let us accept that the itinerary and ministry of Elisha described in II Kings 4:8-17 fits the profile of a 21st century missionary. The question then is: Whose responsibility is it to care for Elisha?

How Can Churches Financially Support Their Missionaries?

"We can fully support them. We have been giving from our pocket. But we’ve not yet given from our cattle, our trees or our grain. We have not yet given our blood. We have to support them by ourselves.”

A jar of oil and a handful of flour

Today in Africa there are many churches – even small ones – that are sending or taking steps towards sending missionaries. A giving church is obeying God’s commandment to take the gospel to the ends of the earth. But what if your church is not yet giving financially to mission?

Meeting the needs of migrants in Malaysia

In the case of Malaysia, the Lower House of Parliament in a 2015 session revealed a figure of 2.7 million registered migrants in the country.

MANI 2016: Hearing and Obeying God in Times Like These

More than 560 delegates from more than 50 countries gathered in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia 7-11 March for the third consultation of the Movement for African National Initiatives (MANI).
