Prayer request from Sumatra, Indonesia

Sumatra is the sixth-largest island in the entire world. Most of the people living in Sumatra have not heard or understood the Gospel message. Only a handful of other countries have more unreached people living in them than the number of unreached people who live just on the island of Sumatra.

One of the unreached people groups is called the Gayo. They live high in the mountains and grow mostly coffee and vegetables. But, most of them are very poor. Dishonest men make some of them sell their coffee crops for much less than they are worth. Many of the Gayo do not understand the basics of health and medicine, so they are often sick or hurting. They don’t know about Jesus’ love, and they don’t have any hope that life will ever get any better. And, they don’t know that they can go to Heaven.

Please pray that the Gayo would hear about and receive the hope and peace Jesus offers. You can read more about them at: http://www.joshuaproject.net/people-profile.php?peo3=11837&rog3=ID
