Bajau Bukit, Papar in Malaysia

The Bajau were once sea-nomads dwelling in boats, harvesting fish and other marine resources. These days, they have increasingly become land-dwellers. Increased opportunity for and appreciation of education has helped some Bajau secure positions in a variety of wage-earning jobs. Many Bajau have merged Islamic practices with their local traditions, such as the reading of Arabic prayers at the beginning of a traditional celebration. One such celebration is called the kenduri arwah, which is a feast practiced in honor of deceased family members.

Ministry Obstacles

The language of this people has very few speakers, and Christian resources may never be provided in this language.

Outreach Ideas

Some people in this tribe speak the Malay language, and resources are available in Malay. Pray for workers to take these to the people.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There is no indication of any followers of Jesus among this small people group. Pray that neighboring Christians will become aware of the need for a gospel witness among this people.

Pray for the Entire People Group

The Bajau communities need infrastructure development in the areas of health and education. More medical workers, facilities, and services are needed. Many of their youth do not complete their schooling. Pray that God would send people to help them with these health and education needs.

Scripture Focus

"Tell of His glory among the nations, His wonderful deeds among all the peoples. For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised." 1 Chronicles 16:24-25

Bosnio in Bosnia-Herzegovina

Los bosnios se caracterizan por su vínculo con la región histórica de Bosnia, la adherencia tradicional al Islam, la cultura y un lenguaje común. Históricamente se extendieron por todas las regiones que habitaban, pero varios casos de "limpieza étnica" y de genocidio han tenido un efecto tremendo en la distribución territorial de su población. En parte debido a esto, una notable diáspora bosnia existe en varios países.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

Los bosnios han sufrido mucho daño durante muchos años de los que han llamado a sí mismos cristianos. Esto no es fácil de superar.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Los cristianos necesitan construir lazos de amistad con los bosnios, sirviendo a sus necesidades físicas y materiales si es posible.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Hay unos pocos seguidores de Cristo entre los bosnios. Ore para que sean valientes en su testimonio de Cristo y a la vez amorosos y discretos. Ore para que vivan una vida santa, con celo de conocer y servir a Jesucristo.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore para que los bosnios tengan hambre de saber más sobre Isa (Jesús), al cual se refiere en el Corán. Ore para que el Señor abra sus ojos a su verdadera naturaleza, y que traiga muchos bosnios a sus pies.

Texto Bíblico

"Mas tan ciertamente como vivo yo, y mi gloria llena toda la tierra." Números 14:21

Bajau Bukit, Papar in 말레이시아

Bajau 종족은 바다의 유목민이라고 할 정도로 배위에 살면서 물고기와 기타 수산물을 잡으며 살아갔던 때가 있었습니다. 오늘날 이들은 육지에 거주하는 이들이 더 많아지고 있습니다. 교육의 기회를 누린 덕택에 Bajau 사람들은 여러 종류의 임금 노동자 지위를 갖게 되었습니다. 많은 Bajau 사람들은 지역 전통과 이슬람을 융합하였는데, 전통 축제의 시작에 아랍어 기도를 낭독하는 것이 그 일례입니다. 그런 축제중의 하나를 kenduri arwah 라고 부르는데, 고인이 된 가족들을 기념하는 잔치입니다.

선교 장애 요인

이 사람들이 사용하는 언어를 말하는 인구가 매우 적으며, 기독교 자료들이 이 언어로는 전혀 제공되지 않을 것으로 추정됩니다.

전도 방법 제안

이 부족 사람중에 일부는 말레이어를 사용하며 말레이어로 제작된 복음자료가 사용가능합니다. 이런 자료를 들고갈 사역자들을 위해 기도해 주십시오.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

이 작은 부족 가운데 예수님을 따르는 사람이 있다는 증거는 없습니다. 주변의 그리스도인들이 이들 부족에게 복음을 증거해야 한다는 것을 알게 되도록 기도해 주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

Bajau 지역사회에는 보건과 교육 분야에 인프라 개발을 필요로 합니다. 더 많은 의료사역자, 기관, 서비스가 필요합니다. 많은 젊은이들은 교육을 제대로 마치지 못합니다. 하나님께서 이들의 보건과 교육 분야의 필요를 채우도록 사람들을 보내시기를 기도드립시다.

성경 말씀

그 영광을 열방 중에, 그 기이한 행적을 만민 중에 선포할찌어다 여호와는 광대하시니 극진히 찬양할 것이요 모든 신보다 경외할 것임이여 역대상 16:24-25
