VISION

Our vision is to see every people group in this country reached with the Christ’s love. So, our aims are for all the believers to be equipped with the vision, skills and resources to proclaim the message of reconciliation with God in word and deed among communities where Christ is not known.

  • God’s love be made known among the least-reached peoples, including migrants, refugees and international students in West Malaysia.
  • God to establish a collaboration of churches, mission groups, and Christian leaders in making disciples of our Lord Jesus in communities where He is least known, ministering at home and overseas.

MINISTRY

  • Humanitarian ministries among the migrants and refugees
  • Friendship evangelism among the international students
  • Partnership in theological education and leadership trainings
  • Community-building programs among the diaspora in the cities

Communities where He is least known

Orang Asli

The Orang Asli, or “original people,” form only 0.6 per cent of the population, numbering about 205,000 in the West Malaysia. Officially, there are 18 tribes of Orang Asli in Malaysia, each with its own culture, religion and language. They are the oldest people groups of Malaysia, but are also the poorest and most oppressed in the country. Traditionally, the Orang Asli are animists who believe in many spirits. Although some have decided to follow Islam or Christianity, others continue to practice their traditional faith. They have retreated further back into the forest to avoid the demands to assimilate to majority culture or convert to another religion.

Migrants and refugees

Many people have come to Malaysia in search of a decent life and a better future for their families. There are an estimated six million migrants in Malaysia, but less than half of them are documented. The rest live and work in the country without proper work permits. As of end of October 2016, there were some 150,669 refugees and asylum-seekers registered with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Malaysia. Like undocumented migrants, refugees don’t have legal rights. They are unable to make their voices heard, and their human rights are often violated. God is calling us all to reach out to them with Christ’s love.

International students

International students continue to choose Malaysia as a preferred higher education destination due to the quality education offered in the country. At present, around 180,000 foreign students are pursuing their higher education in the country. Most of the international students originate from Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Middle Asia and African countries, with a minimal number also from Europe. International Student Ministry in West Malaysia seeks to engage students with the Gospel through various means, making disciples who can engage with their own culture when they return home.

PRAYERS

1.

Pray for the removal of barriers, so that God’s love can be shared freely across the country to all.

2.

Pray for more trained workers to serve amongst the migrants, refugees and international students.

3.

Pray for increased participation and partnership with local churches to do God’s mission at doorsteps.

4.

Pray for resources and staff to mobilize local churches and support incoming workers.
