BRINGING GOOD NEWS TO HARD PLACES

In partnership with existing churches and institutions, SIM Indonesia reaches out to the least-reached in Indonesia by word and deed, meeting their physical and spiritual needs, proclaiming the good news of Jesus in their midst, and discipling them into Christ-centered churches.

Communities where He is least known

A Community in West Kalimantan

The gospel has been spread consistently by missionaries for more than half a century in West Kalimantan, resulting in large denominations among some ethnic communities. However, one community, numbering 1.5 million people, has less than 1 percent following Jesus. West Kalimantan has more than 15 theological schools, 120 church denominations, and more than 4,000 religious workers, yet less than 1 percent of all Christians are reaching this large community. There are less than 20 people actively focused on sharing the gospel with them. Following are characteristics of those living within this community:

• Identify with Islam and are not open to other faiths
• Embrace folk tales and mystical things
• Resistant to outside influence, as this population lives in tightly-knit families and communities. It takes a long time to be accepted into the community
• Follows their own teachings and practices closely, and must be approached tactfully with new ideas
• Usually open to those with whom they have cultivated a certain level of relationship
