Enrekang, Maiwa in Indonesia

The Enrekang live in the foothills around the regencies of Enrekang and Pinrang in the province of South Sulawesi. The culture of the Enrekang has been influenced by its more populous and more powerful neighbors, the Toraja and Bugis people. The traditional Enrekang house is raised on stilts that are three meters high. This is done as a protection from wild animal attacks. Both the walls and floors of the house are made from wooden planks. The enclosure below the house can also be used as a stall for livestock or as a storehouse. Despite their professed loyalty to Islam, many Enrekang are still influenced by traditional animistic beliefs and superstitions. These beliefs are focused on the quest for protection through magic, by either appeasing or controlling both good and bad spirits.

Ministry Obstacles

There is no scripture reported as available in the Enrekang language, nor are there other resources such as Gospel recordings.

Outreach Ideas

There are many believers in the nearby Toraja group. Pray they will understand the Great Commission as applied to their neighbors, the Enrekang.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Even though there are no known Christians among the Enrekang people at this time, please pray for those who will soon come to saving faith in Christ. They will need encouragement and they will need teachers to help them grow spiritually and in numbers.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Farming in the Enrekang area is considered to be less than promising and as a result many Enrekang people leave the area to work as laborers in the cities and towns throughout Sulawesi and other parts of Indonesia. Please pray for improved employment opportunities in this area.

Scripture Focus

"The Lord of hosts will prepare a lavish banquet for all peoples on this mountain.. And on this mountain He will swallow up the covering which is over all peoples, Even the veil which is stretched over all nations. He will swallow up death for all time." Isaiah 25:6-8
