Sasak in Indonesia


Sasak in Indonesia

Sasaks are farmers, laborers, fishermen and craftsmen. Some also weave and create earthenware. They are increasingly looking for work in larger cities, both on Lombok and on other Indonesian islands.

Ministry Obstacles

To visitors, the Sasak seem unrefined and even aggressive. They are actually very friendly and open to those they accept into their community. Reaching them with the gospel will require perseverance and a willingness to overcome these obstacles.

Outreach Ideas

There have been Discovery Bible Studies among the Sasak people resulting in many turning their hearts to Jesus. Mission workers can use this foundation to introduce more Sasak people to the Savior.

Scripture Focus

"In the path of your judgments, O LORD, we wait for you; your name and remembrance are the desire of our soul."  Isaiah 26:8

Scripture Prayer

Pray that many from this people group will trust the Lord, obey Him, and glorify His name through their actions.

Prayer Focus

Pray for believers in Sasak communities to understand biblical principles and share them with others who need God's guidance. Pray that they would not fall away from the Lord but be ready to disciple others in his ways. Pray for God to reveal himself through signs and wonders that point to Christ. Pray for hearts to be softened and prepared to receive the good news. Pray for spiritual hunger among Sasak leaders. Pray that missionaries would be filled with boldness to start many churches among the Sasak that would reproduce rapidly and become a movement to Christ.
