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.
Balinese people reside on this "island of the gods." Many Balinese people also live on the nearby islands of Lombok, Lampung, Sulawesi, South Kalimantan, Sumbawa and Papua, as well as in Malaysia, a beautiful country near Indonesia.
There are no known believers among the Balinese in Malaysia. Close-knit societies make it especially difficult for a member to find their way to the cross.
"Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment." Psalm 51:4
Pray that leaders among this people group will understand the depth of their sin just as King David did.
There are resources in the Balinese language, including a complete Bible and the JESUS Film. Perhaps Malaysian believers from other people groups will be burdened to take Christ to the Balinese people. Pray that Balinese elders in Malaysia would experience dreams and visions of Jesus that will open their hearts to him.
