Introduction

The Batas people live on the far eastern edge of Indonesia's Maluka Island. They are known for their legend about a flying primate-like creature that can take small children away from their families.


Ministry Obstacles

There has been Christian mission work among these Muslims, but there are no believers among them. The Bati people are officially Muslim. In addition to the spiritual bondage of Islam, there is the oppression of traditional religion.


Outreach Ideas

Pray for the Lord to raise up courageous, Holy Spirit-filled believers who are willing to die if need be to see the Bati people reached for the only Savior.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are no followers of Christ among the Bati people, so pray that this will be the year when the Holy Spirit moves in their communities in a powerful way.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray that the Bati people will give up living in fear, and live by faith in the God who sent His Son to give them life to the full. Pray for believers to live among them, and share both physical and spiritual blessings. Pray for a disciple-making movement to spread throughout their communities.
