Communities where He is least known

Muslim peoples in the southern Philippines

The Philippines is home to 14 Muslim groups, all originating from Mindanao. Each group has a unique culture, but all share the same faith, which is mixed with animistic practices.

For years, they have fought for autonomy from the government. Both the failure of past peace talks and terroristic activities have resulted in armed conflicts, causing death and the displacement of people. In July 2018, the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) was signed by the Philippine president.

Pray that the BBL will lead to success for peace talks and a decline in terrorism. Pray that the BBL will not hinder the ongoing work in various communities. Pray for protection and wisdom for the SIM workers and Muslim-background believers reaching out to Muslims. Pray that through the ministries of SIM Philippines and our partners, more Muslims will come to know the Prince of Peace.


Migrant Muslim peoples

The establishment of the Islamic Center in Manila in 1964 led to the building of several mosques and the formation of surrounding Muslim communities. Many Muslims fled to Manila and other cities following armed conflict in Mindanao.

In partnership with like-minded organizations and churches, SIM Philippines is serving in five urban poor communities in metro Manila and other communities in Batangas and Davao, through ministries related to children, youth, women and livelihood.

Pray for more Filipino churches and individuals to engage in Muslim ministries and in sending and caring for missionaries.

Pray for ongoing efforts to mobilize, network and develop good partnerships.
