Southeast Asia

And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him?
And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?
(Romans 10:14) NLT

A BRIEF SYNOPSIS

There are 235 million people in Southeast Asia. The region is complex, with numerous languages, ethnicities, and variations on religion, although most have a strong Buddhist background. 

Christianity has been here for centuries, but most people consider it to be a foreign religion, and there is a strong worldview clash between it and Buddhism. While there has been some progress, Christians adherents are largely found among minority peoples and make up a very small share of the overall population. Seventy-one percent of people groups here are unreached.

But God is at work! Beyond partners with other networks to start disciple-making movements and catalyze new church planting movements. Several significant efforts have been birthed, and we pray earnestly for the day when Christ is widely worshiped in every language in the region.


HOW CAN WE PRAY

  • Pray that the Father would reveal himself to Buddhists in many ways, including dreams, visions, miracles, through friends, and in His Word.

  • Pray for healings and supernatural revelations of grace for Buddhists are more likely to be impacted by the stories of Jesus’ power and His free offer of salvation.

  • Pray that God would break down spiritual strongholds and human arguments against God, which produce resistance through social solidarity among Buddhists.

“It MUST BE JESUS WHO DID THIS!”

*Uhn was the town drunk and the senior patriarch of his large extended family. Over a year ago, *Scott’s local partner, a capable movement catalyst, led Uhn to faith in Jesus. 

After prayer, he was able to stop all drinking and has taken deliberate steps to walk in obedience to Christ. After completing a short set of lessons with his discipleship group, they dug into the book of Mark using an obedience-oriented discovery process. Uhn even took upon himself the task of memorizing the Gospel of Mark. 

Scott was very moved when he followed along as Uhn recited Mark chapter 10, word for word.
