Sasak in Indonesia

Unreached of the Day  6/03/2021

Sasak in Indonesia

pronounced: SAH-sahk

Most Sasaks are farmers, some are laborers, some are fishermen and some are craftsmen. One can find weavings and earthenware crafts made by skilled Sasak workers in several villages. Many of these are sold to tourists or even exported to Western countries. Many Sasaks look for work in larger cities, both on Lombok and on other islands.

Ministry Obstacles

For newcomers, the Sasak seem very unrefined, frightening and aggressive. But once you get to know them, the Sasak are actually very friendly and open. It will take people who are willing to persevere and overcome obstacles to reach the Sasak people.

Outreach Ideas

There have been Discovery Bible Studies among the Sasak people resulting in many turning their hearts to Jesus. More workers can use this foundation to introduce more Sasak people to the Savior.

Scripture Focus

"May our barns be filled with crops of every kind."  Psalm 144:13a

Scripture Prayer

Pray that physical prosperity will lead this people group to thankfulness to the Lord rather than spiritual apathy.

Prayer Focus

Pray that the believers in Sasak communities will understand biblical principals and share them with others who need God's guidance. Pray that they will not fall away from the Lord but be ready to disciple others in His ways. * Pray that God will continue to go ahead of missionaries with undeniable signs and wonders that point to Christ. * Pray for spiritual hunger among Sasak leaders. * Pray that local and foreign missionaries will be filled with boldness to start many Discovery Bible Study story groups among Sasak households that will reproduce rapidly and cause a movement to Christ.
