Learn More About The Region:

The first missionaries that went to the 27 island nations of the South Pacific 200 years ago were stunned by the beautiful green landscapes and women with long, black hair. But they were also appalled by immorality, human sacrifices and idolatry. Thanks to their hard work, it is difficult to find ethnic groups in this part of the world that have no contact with the gospel—only 27 people groups remain here with less than 2% evangelical believers and less than 5% adherents to any form of Christianity. Now Pacific Islanders are taking the gospel a step further by sending and being sent as missionaries themselves. The 11 nations of Southeast Asia once were Hindu, later Buddhist and now most are Muslim. Over 600 least-reached people groups remain here now and the gospel is slowly making inroads, though five nations still have more than 50% of their populations among least-reached groups and well over 130 million people are still considered least-reached in this region. Through SEALINK, the Southeast Asia unreached peoples partnership, more and more of the peoples of this region are beginning to hear and respond to the gospel. Pray for spiritual obstacles to be removed and for God to quickly establish vibrant fellowships of believers among all groups, peoples joining together to glorify God among all peoples.

Prayer Points:

RESOURCEFULNESS:

– Pray that God causes people from the Body of to work with His divine creativity and in the unity of the Spirit to overcome every barrier to the gospel among every people group.

RAPID:

– Pray for the Word of God to spread rapidly and be honored as it is proclaimed by faithful men and women before those around them, especially among the remaining Least-Reached Peoples.

REMAINDER:

– Pray for the remainder of Least-Reached Groups in the these regions to be reached and to join hands with God, one another, and believers around the globe to reach and transform the remaining groups with the kingdom of God.

EXPATRIATE & INDIGENOUS WORKERS:

– God would thrust forth many more workers and provide creative means of access to the Least-Reached Peoples throughout these regions for the gospel.

CONTEXTUAL EVANGELISM:

– Just as the believers were using songs and stories, pray for God to help believers creatively communicate the gospel and His Truth through familiar means with an eternal message of Hope and Salvation.
