Southeast Asia


About the Region

With the island nation of Indonesia claiming the largest Muslim population in the world, Southeast Asia is recognized as a priority region for the spread of the Gospel. Exciting movements of faith in Jesus Christ have already taken place in recent years.

Nevertheless, new workers are needed in this region to advance the momentum of God’s work in Southeast Asia and point Muslims to the path of salvation through Jesus Christ.

Regional needs

Taking the Gospel to the unengaged Muslim people groups of Southeast Asia poses unique challenges.

New workers who are willing to serve in the most remote islands are critical to Kingdom growth.

Over 50 languages are spoken in Indonesia. Those with the patience, humility, and dedication to learn and share the Good News in new languages will find many opportunities in this beautiful island region.

How to pray

  • Pray for the effectiveness of the Word of God as it is distributed throughout the region and as Muslims read it for the very first time.
  • Ask for revival among national believers, and that they would share their faith with their Muslim neighbors.
  • Islamic practice is steeped in folk traditions. Ask God to help workers discover how to share His infinite love and power with Muslims.
  • Pray for more laborers to point Muslims to the path of eternal salvation through Jesus Christ.
