The Southern Thai Islam people live in a cultural ecotone where Islam and Malay cultures are to their south, and Thai languages and Buddhism are to their north. Southern Thai Islam people speak a Thai language, but they are Muslims like their Malay neighbors to the south. They are in a way, torn between two worlds. Unfortunately, they have not had the chance to turn their hearts to Jesus Christ and make Him the center of their identity.
There are no known believers among the Southern Thai Islam people, so if they are going to hear the gospel, it will have to come from someone outside their community.
Pray that followers of Jesus will be used of the Lord to plant churches among Southern Thai speaking Muslims that will lead to more church planting.
There are no known believers among the Southern Thai Islam community, so pray for this to soon change. * Pray for a spiritual hunger to come to Southern Thai Muslim leaders that will lead them to find out about Jesus Christ and open the doors for others to do the same.
* Pray for a movement of God's blessing to flow through Southern Thai Muslim families discussing and applying God's Word.
* Pray for the Name of Jesus to be known by people in every Southern Thai village.
