Penghulu in Indonesia

It is thought that this group came from West Sumatra to Jambi in the 15th century, and came as gold seekers. Their main livelihood is cultivating rice paddies and non-irrigated fields. They also produce woven handicrafts consisting of balls, floor mats, baskets, bowls, and winnowing trays. Additionally, the Penghulu make metalwork handicrafts such as knives, axes, cleavers, and adzes. The Penghulu are led by a board of elders with representatives from each extended family. Though in general the Penghulu are Muslims, they still cling to traditional animistic beliefs for everyday life. They believe that strong spirits inhabit sacred sites. Some are still in the habit of giving offerings to appease the spirits. Many people seek help from the shaman for daily needs like treating the sick or casting out evil spirits.

Ministry Obstacles

The Penghulu lack an understanding of who Jesus truly is. They need to know that he is deity, the Son of God.

Outreach Ideas

Pray that some youth in this tribe will download scripture and the Jesus film from the Internet, as well as Gospel recordings. Pray the Lord will give them understanding as they read and view these resources.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are no known followers of Jesus today among the Penghulu. Pray the Lord will soon stir the hearts of many to find a Savior from their sin, and learn that Isa (Jesus) as he is known in the Koran is that Savior and not just another prophet.

Pray for the Entire People Group

The Penghulu need help in becoming better equipped to develop their natural resources (forestry as well as gold mining), so that products can be processed in a way that yields the best balance of financial profit and social welfare. They also need capital to increase their agricultural yields.

Scripture Focus

"The time is coming to gather all nations and tongues. And they shall come and see My glory." Isaiah 66:18

Zaza-Dimli in Turquía

Dimli significa "de Dailam" y es muy probable que este grupo sea descendiente de los dailamitas (residentes de una región montañosa al suroeste del Caspio llamada Dailam) Han sido guerreros feroces enfocados en la conquista. Los dimli son diferentes a los kurdos en dos formas: lenguaje y religión. Tienen un dialecto distintivo, y los kurdos que son sunitas los ven como herejes. Los dimli siguen tradiciones religiosas de los alevi shiitas.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

Se necesitan Las Escrituras y otros recursos en su idioma zaza-dimli.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Las trasmisiones radiales son útiles, pero se necesita oración constante por los zaza-dimli.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Hay pocos seguidores de Jesús si los hay entre los zaza-dili, pero ore por aquellos que pronto se darán a conocer. Ore porque los creyentes zaza-dimli estén bien cimentados en la Escritura y tengan grandes deseos de crecer en la fe.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore por esta gente para que vivan vidas pacificas, estableciendo buenas relaciones con el gobierno turco y otros grupos étnicos.

Texto Bíblico

"Proclamad entre las naciones su gloria, En todos los pueblos sus maravillas." Salmos 96:3

Penghulu in 인도네시아

이 종족은 주후 15세기경에 서 수마트라에서 Jambi 로 금광을 찾아 온 것으로 생각됩니다. 이들의 주요 생활수단은 논과 비관개식 밭에서 쌀을 재배하는 것입니다. 이들은 공, 바닥 매트, 바구니, 우묵한 그릇, 키질하는 도구같은 공예품을 생산합니다. 또한 Penghulu 사람들은 칼, 도끼, 식칼, 손도끼같은 금속 공예품을 제작하기도 합니다. Penghulu 사람들을 이끄는 것은 각 대가족의 대표들로 구성된 연장자 회의입니다. 일반적으로 Penghulu 사람들은 무슬림이지만 매일의 삶에서 전통 정령신앙의 믿음을 실행하며 살아갑니다. 이들은 강력한 귀신들이 성스러운 지역에 거주한다고 믿습니다. 일부는 귀신들을 달래기 위해 제사를 드리는 습관을 아직도 지키고 있습니다. 많은 이들이 병자를 고치거나 악령을 내쫒기 위해 매일 샤먼(무당)의 도움을 찾습니다.

선교 장애 요인

Penghulu 사람들은 예수님이 진정 누구신지에 대한 이해가 부족합니다. 예수님께서 하나님의 아들이신 신(deity)이심을 알 필요가 있습니다.

전도 방법 제안

이 종족의 젊은 이들이 성경과 예수 영화 뿐 아니라 복음 오디오 녹음자료를 인터넷에서 다운로드할 수 있게 되기를 기도해 주십시오. 주님께서 이들이 그런 자료를 읽고 볼 때에 그들에게 이해력을 허락하시기를 기도해 주십시오.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

Penghulu 사람들 가운데 예수님을 따르는 사람들은 없는 것으로 보입니다. 주님께서 많은 이들의 마음을 자극시키셔서 그들의 죄에서 구원하실 분을 찾도록, 코란에 나오는 이사(Isa, 예수님)께서 또다른 예언자가 아니라 구세주이심을 배우도록 기도해 주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

Penghulu 사람들은 그들의 자연 자원(삼림, 금광)을 더 잘 개발하기 위해 도움이 필요한데, 재정적인 이득과 사회 복지의 균형을 가장 잘 맞추기 위해서는 그런 생산물이 잘 가공되어야 합니다. 농업 생산량을 증대시키기 위한 자본금도 필요합니다.

성경 말씀

내가 그들의 소위와 사상을 아노라 때가 이르면 열방과 열족을 모으리니 그들이 와서 나의 영광을 볼 것이며 이사야 66:18
