Java Pesisir Kulon of Indonesia

The Jawa Pesisir Kulon people tend to be open and spontaneous in their social interactions. This is evident in their vibrant, colorful, and artistic clothing. Their culture leans more toward Islamic culture than towards their own historical Jawa culture. Islam is looked at as the national cultural foundation that takes precedence over traditional Jawa cultural values. Despite the adherence to Islam, the practice of occultism is very evident. Dukun (shaman/healer/occultist) are heavily relied upon. Various ceremonies that include meals are done to obtain happiness, safety, and peace.

Ministry Obstacles

The Jawa Pesisir Kulon people may not have a proper understanding of what Jesus taught, and who He claimed to be. Pray for accuracy in their understanding.

Outreach Ideas

Perhaps the current followers of Christ among this people will grow in numbers and maturity such that they can effectively carry the good news of Jesus to the entire community. Pray for a church planting movement to begin and be sustained.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for those who know and follow Jesus among the Jawa Pesisir Kulon people. Pray they will be firmly established in the faith, not doubting or wavering like shifting shadow. Pray they will be rooted and established in love.

Pray for the entire people group

The Jawa Pesisir Kulon need high quality, practical, vocational training, including appropriate technology. Present industries need to be expanded. The transportation infrastructure needs to be developed.
