Cham, Western in Cambodia

Long ago, the Cham had a strong empire, called Champa, located in southern Vietnam. In 1471, Champa was invaded and destroyed by the Vietnamese, and most freemen and aristocrats fled to Cambodia. In 1975, more than 250,000 Muslim Cham lived in Cambodia. With the rise of the Khmer Rouge regime, however, their population was decimated. Captured and removed from their homes, they were forbidden to speak their native language and forced to eat pork, which is an abomination to Muslims. About 100,000 Cham were said to have been executed. Cham villagers are extremely poor, and their settlements convey a sense of impermanence. They are now largely integrated into the Cambodian lifestyle and many now speak Khmer (Cambodian).

Ministry Obstacles

This Muslim community living in Buddhist Cambodia may have become especially protective of their culture and their religion.

Outreach Ideas

Sustained prayer is needed to prepare hearts of the Cham. Gospel recordings and the Jesus film can both be useful in communicating the good news of Jesus.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are some believers in Christ among the Cham of Cambodia. Pray the Jesus film and Gospel recordings (which are available) will be taken to these believers. Workers are needed.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for improved living conditions for the Cham, for employment opportunities, and for good schools to be available for the children.

Scripture Focus

"After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb." Revelation 7:9

Gujarati in Tanzania

Los gujarati se consideran principalmente habitantes del estado de Gujarat, al oeste de la India. Para muchos, gujarati es su lengua materna. La mayoría de los gujarati han emigrado a otros países del mundo, y a menudo son llamados simplemente "gujarati" aunque pueden ser representados por una serie de castas y tribus. La mayoría de los gujarati son hindúes, independientemente de su ubicación en el mundo, aunque puede haber muchos musulmanes entre ellos.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

Los gujarati de Tanzania pueden tener mentalidad insular, con el deseo de proteger su cultura de esas culturas muy distintas que los rodean. Esta mentalidad puede hacer especialmente difícil el encontrar corazones que crean.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Los obreros cristianos deben estar atentos a los límites de las castas y las tribus dentro de la población gujarati. Al principio estos límites pueden estar un poco escondidos de los extranjeros.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Ore por los seguidores de Jesús entre esta etnia que tienen sus raíces en India. Ore también para que ellos acepten a Cristo como Salvador, sin mezclar su comprensión del Evangelio con las tradiciones hindúes. Ore por la claridad de comprensión y la fidelidad en la práctica. Ore para que ellos tengan gozo siempre, orando sin cesar y dando gracias en todas las circunstancias.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore para que los gujarati de Tanzania sean cada vez más conscientes de Jesús, y que reciban información precisa acerca de este hombre y lo que Él enseñó. Ore para que cada individuo en la comunidad gujarati tenga una o más oportunidades de escuchar en su propia lengua materna.

Texto Bíblico

"Bienaventurada la nación cuyo Dios es Jehová, El pueblo que él escogió como heredad para sí." Salmos 33:12

Cham, Western in 캄보디아

Cham 종족은 오래전 남부 베트남에 위치했던 Champa 라는 강력한 제국을 이루고 있었습니다. 1471년도에 Champa 는 베트남 사람들에게 침공당해 멸망했으며, 대부분의 자유인들과 귀족들은 캄보디아로 피신했습니다. 하지만 크메르 루즈 정권이 들어서자 이들은 학살되어 인구가 크게 줄었습니다. 이들은 사로잡히거나 자신들의 집에서 쫒겨났고, 모국어 사용을 금지당했으며 무슬림에게는 혐오스럽게 여겨지는 돼지고기를 강제로 먹을 수밖에 없었습니다. 약 100,000명의 Cham 종족이 사형당한 것으로 전해집니다. 현재 Cham 종족의 마을은 극도로 가난하며 이들의 정착지는 임시적인 것으로 보여집니다. 대체로 캄보디아의 삶의 방식에 동화되었으며 이제는 크메르어(캄보디아어)를 구사하는 이들이 많습니다.

선교 장애 요인

이 무슬림 사회는 불교국가인 캄보디아에 살고 있으며 자신들의 문화와 종교를 특별히 보호하고 지켜왔을 수 있습니다.

전도 방법 제안

Cham 종족의 마음을 준비하기 위해 지속적인 기도가 필요합니다. 예수 영화와 복음 오디오 녹음이 예수님의 좋은 소식을 전달하는 데 유용할 수 있습니다.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

캄보디아의 Cham 종족 가운데에는 그리스도를 믿는 소수의 신자들이 있습니다. 예수영화와 복음 오디오 녹음이 사용가능하며, 이 신자들에게 전달될 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오. 사역자들이 필요합니다.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

Cham 종족의 삶의 조건이 개선되도록 기도해 주시고, 고용의 기회들과 아이들을 위한 좋은 학교가 있게 되기를 기도해 주십시오.

성경 말씀

이 일 후에 내가 보니 각 나라와 족속과 백성과 방언에서 아무라도 능히 셀 수 없는 큰 무리가 흰 옷을 입고 손에 종려 가지를 들고 보좌 앞과 어린 양 앞에 서서 요한계시록 7:9
