Java Banyumasan of Indonesia

Most of the Jawa Banyumasan people make their living from farming, and they are fairly advanced in agricultural production. The majority are Muslim, however, most are nominal Muslims. The other one-fifth are serious Muslims who strictly follow Islamic teachings and are faithful in worship. In addition, there are some Jawa Banyumasan who follow animistic beliefs. They believe there are spirits that come from the unseen world.

Ministry Obstacles

The majority of the Jawa Banyumasan people are Muslim, although most are not strongly committed to Islam.

Outreach Ideas

Pray that the Christians in this people group will grow in maturity and numbers such that they can carry the good news of Christ to their own people.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There are followers of Christ among the Jawa Banyumasan people. Pray they will be faithful to fellowship together, encouraging each other and teaching each other. Pray they will be zealous to be real disciples of Christ.

Pray for the entire people group

The Jawa Banyumasan people still need assistance to increase their agricultural production. They need more dams; a better irrigation system would help them harvest more than three times as much per year. Development of new industry is still needed outside the city of Cilacap.
