Kutai in Indonesia

Partially due to their frequent relocations, the Kutai live spread out along the eastern coast of East Kalimantan. In the past, the Kutai had a system of social classes that included nobleman, ordinary people, and slaves. The nobility used to be called Kramas, Mas, Aji, and Radenor Pangeran Datu. Today, respect is given to people based on their education and wealth, not their title. Generally, the Kutai are Muslims. However, in their daily lives, they still worship spirits. Previously, the Kutai were Hindu and they were called 'Kaharingan'. Since then, however, most people in the Kutai area have turned to Islam. This has resulted in much mixing between the faiths of Islam and Hinduism.

Ministry Obstacles

No Christian resources are reported as available in the language of the Kutai. No scripture, no Jesus film, no Gospel recordings or other resources.

Outreach Ideas

Perhaps Christians in other Indonesian tribes will be led to take the news of Christ to the Kutai. Pray especially they will make contact with Kutai Christians, and will be able to help these people grow to spiritual maturity.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

The few people in the Kutai people group who identify themselves as Christians need prayer support. Pray they will clearly understand the distinction that must be made between a real disciple of Jesus Christ and that of a casual commitment to the Christian religion. Pray they will learn to live in the power of Christ's Spirit, demonstrating love, joy, peace, and all the fruit of the Spirit.

Pray for the Entire People Group

The Kutai need better transportation infrastructure to assist the remote villagers in taking their crops and commodities to the market. At present, the main form of transportation is by sea and river, as land transportation is very difficult.

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

Kurdo, Turco Hablante in Turquía

La mayoría de los kurdos en Turquía viven en las grandes ciudades como Estambul o en el sureste de Turquía. La cuestión del idioma hablado (kurdo o turco) por los kurdos de Turquía es un tema delicado, ya que la lengua kurda ha sido prohibida por el gobierno en diferentes momentos. El gran número de kurdos en Turquía son considerados por el gobierno como una amenaza a la estabilidad ya que los kurdos siempre han querido tener su propio país.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

Los kurdos, y la mayoría de los pueblos musulmanes, sólo tienen una comprensión parcial de quien es Jesús realmente. Ore para que el Señor abra sus ojos para ver y creer.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Se necesita de mucha oración constante y enfocada para preparar los corazones de los kurdos para las buenas nuevas de Jesús, y también para ayudarles a establecerse firmemente en la fe.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Son pocos los creyentes entre los kurdos de habla turca, pero ore por ellos y por los que pronto se unirán a su número. Ore para que sean alegres siempre, orando sin cesar y dando gracias en todas las circunstancias. Ore para que aprendan a arrepentirse de sus pecados y a confiar en el Espíritu del Señor para vivir una vida victoriosa. Ore por santidad entre ellos.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore para que los kurdos eviten la guerra con el gobierno turco.

Texto Bíblico

"a fin de que todos los pueblos de la tierra sepan que Jehová es Dios, y que no hay otro." 1 Reyes 8:60

Kutai in 인도네시아

Kutai 사람들이 동칼리만탄주의 해안에 흩어져 사는 이유는 아마도 잦은 이전같아보입니다. Kutai 종족은 과거에 귀족, 평민, 노예들로 구성되는 사회계급구조가 있었습니다. 귀족계층은 Kramas, Mas, Aji, Radenor Pangeran Datu라고 불렸습니다. 하지만 오늘날의 사람들이 존경받는 이유는 교육정도와 부유함 때문이며 더이상 그들의 작위때문이 아닙니다. 일반적으로 Kutai 종족은 무슬림입니다. 하지만 매일의 삶 속에서 여전히 귀신들을 숭배하고 있습니다. 예전에 Kutai 종족은 힌두교인이었으며 'Kaharingan' 이라고 불리곤 했습니다. 하지만 Kutai 지역의 대부분 사람들이 그 이후로 이슬람으로 개종했습니다. 이로 인해 이슬람과 힌두교의 믿음이 상당부분 혼합되는 일이 발생했습니다.

선교 장애 요인

Kutai 언어로 사용가능한 기독교 복음 자료는 존재한다고 알려진 것이 전혀 없습니다. 성경도, 예수 영화도, 복음 오디오 녹음이나 기타 다른 자료 하나 없습니다.

전도 방법 제안

타 인도네시아 부족들 안에 있는 기독교인들이 그리스도의 소식을 Kutai 종족에게 전하기 위해 이끌림받을 수 있을 것입니다. 그들이 Kutai 기독교인들과 접촉할 수 있도록 특별히 기도해 주시고, 그들이 자라나서 영적으로 성숙할 수 있게 돕도록 기도해 주십시오.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

Kutai 민족집단에 있는 소수의 사람들이 스스로 기독교인이라고 말하는데, 기도의 지원이 필요합니다. 그들이 예수 그리스도의 진실한 제자가 되는것과, 기독교를 건성으로 믿는 것과의 차이를 명확히 이해하게 되도록 기도해 주십시오. 그리스도의 영의 능력으로 사는 법을 배우게 되도록, 사랑, 기쁨, 평화와 성령의 모든 열매를 실증하며 살도록 기도해 주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

Kutai 사람들 중 외딴 지역에 사는 이들도 수확물과 상품을 시장에 내다팔기 위해서 개선된 교통 인프라 시설이 필요합니다. 현재 주요 운송수단은 바다와 강을 통하는 것 뿐이며 육상이송은 매우 어렵습니다.

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
