Introduction / History

The Indonesians in Hong Kong have more migrants than any other immigrant group here except for those from the Philippines. People from Indonesia began to come to Hong Kong in the 1960s. These were Chinese Indonesians who found life in Indonesia difficult as they were not looked on favorably.

Most Indonesians in Hong Kong are domestic workers. The migrant workers tend to be low paid. Indonesians here tend not to use banks in general but use friends and other means for sending money. Many Indonesians have said their families have used the money to begin businesses.

The Indonesians in Hong Kong are Sunni Muslims. About half the Muslims in Hong Kong are from Indonesia. They have Islamic NGOs that help them to learn Arabic and the Koran. There are some Islamic schools here that are usually looked after by these NGOs.

The Indonesians in Hong Kong live in several regions of the Island. They speak Javanese and Indonesian.

Prayer Points

* Pray that God gives the Indonesians in Hong Kong dreams and visions leading them to Salvation.
* Pray that gospel materials bring them to Jesus Christ.
