What is the first thing that comes to the mind of a Westerner about Indonesia? The answer is Bali, the fabulous and scenic holiday destination. About the size of Europe, Indonesia is also the most populous Muslim country in the world. A tourist will not see the oppression the minority Christian population experiences, or the destruction of churches or even the very serious persecution occurring in some places.
Last year, Voice of the Martyrs trained 200 young frontline workers to share the Gospel with unreached Muslim tribes. Muslims have found Christ and new churches have been established as a result. In 2020, the goal is to help the training school become self-supporting. This will be accomplished by purchasing a fishing boat and using the proceeds to support the evangelists.

- Thank the Lord for the biblical training school which is equipping many to serve as evangelists and church planters. Pray for the plans for the school to become self-supporting.
- Pray the Lord will protect these workers as they minister courageously in unreached areas. Ask God to continue to provide opportunities to advance His kingdom.
- Praise God for the growth of the church and pray new believers will be strengthened in their faith.
