Lampung Pesisir in Indonesia

pronounced: LAHM-poong peh-SEE-seer

One of the key principles of the Lampung Peminggir is that of Pi-il Pesenggiri, which means, "guarding one's dignity above all else." They usually live a simple life, yet they love to receive honor or praise. They typically do not hesitate to spend huge sums on ritual celebrations. The Lampung Peminggir are followers of Sunni Shafi'i Islam.

Ministry Obstacles

The good news of grace found in the finished work of Jesus Christ is difficult for these people to comprehend and accept.

Outreach Ideas

Scriptures, the Jesus film, and Gospel recordings are available in the language of these people. Pray for workers.

Scripture Focus

"Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue; I will proclaim your greatness."  Psalm 145:6

Scripture Prayer

Thank Him for His awe-inspiring deeds!

Prayer Focus

Pray for the believers among this people group, that they will know that it is by grace they have been saved, not of works that they may not boast. Pray for the Gospel to soon be made available to each individual in this community, in their own language, and in a manner they can understand and believe.
