Balinese in Malaysia

The island of Bali is probably better known than the country of Indonesia. The word "Bali" brings to mind visions of a tropical paradise. Its beauty, friendly people, exquisite art and unique culture have made Bali a favorite destination for millions of tourists from around the world. On this "island of the gods" reside the Balinese. However, many Balinese can also be found on the nearby island of Lombok, as well as in Lampung, Sulawesi, South Kalimantan, Sumbawa and Papua. Others live in Malaysia, a beautiful country near Indonesia.

Ministry Obstacles
Close-knit societies make it especially difficult for any one member to follow a different religion.

Outreach Ideas
Perhaps Malaysian believers from other people groups will be burdened to carry the good news of Jesus to the Balinese people.

Scripture Focus
"If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him."  James 1:5

Scripture Prayer
Pray for this people group to begin to seek the wisdom of God that is found in His word.

Prayer Focus
There are no known believers among the Balinese in Malaysia, so pray this would soon change. Pray that Balinese elders in Malaysia would have dreams and visions of Jesus that will open their hearts to Him. Pray for spiritual openness among the Balinese people. Pray that as Balinese Hindus embrace Christ, they would forsake all other gods. Pray for a many Balinese in Malaysia to come to Christ in Indonesian and Australia.
