Blessing Muslims in Southeast Asia
Don, a father of three living in a rural village, is dying from tuberculosis despite living less than 10 km away from a hospital where he could be treated. Jenny, a new college graduate, is unable to get a job in her profession because she lacks English proficiency. Tom and Lily, 10- and 8-year-old siblings, beg on a street corner instead of attending school because their parents desperately need money.
What do all of them have in common?
They are all part of a Muslim people group in Southeast Asia and represent those being blessed by local and expat Christ followers as part of the , which aims to demonstrate God’s love for them through providing community health education and support, an English conversational club for university students, and educational support for underprivileged children, including those who are on the street.
Project donations are used to sponsor children from poor families to go to school; to employ national staff, most of whom are near-culture believers who also want to bless their Muslim neighbours; to run educational activities equipping future leaders in English, raising villagers’ health awareness, and training poor families with life skills; and to rent and maintain training/office facilities.
All of these initiatives, however, only provide the opportunity to be heard. Prayer is needed to see people receive God’s love and to reflect that love to others. You can be an integral part of this work by praying for
- the Holy Spirit to speak to people’s hearts through the local team of believers
- favour with government officials issuing program and work visa permissions
- more skilled national and expat Christ followers who share the vision to join this work
