Bali is considered by many people to be a tropical paradise. People have loved visiting Bali for hundreds of years. The Dutch lived there for a while. So did the Japanese during World War II. Today, tourists travel there from all over the world.
More than three-fourths of the island’s population is Hindu. There are tens of thousands of Hindu temples throughout the island. Bali has lots of festivals and parades. Everything is big and bright and colorful. But the festivals honor idols. The people have statues of hundreds of gods. They bring the statues out on special occasions, take them places, feed them, and take care of them. But, we need to think about that. We’re not supposed to take care of gods, God takes care of us.
Please pray that the people of Bali will know the One true God who cares for each of us. You can read more about the people of Bali at http://www.joshuaproject.net/people-profile.php?peo3=10606&rog3=ID.
