Huaulu in Indonesia

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

The tiny tribe of Huaula people live in Indonesia on the island of Seram. This people group lives a very simple life, without regular running water or electricity. They are known for "selling" women into a marriage, though it is debatable whether they are sold or given away, or perhaps something in between. Either way, Huaula women are given low status in their communities.

Ministry Obstacles
Small tribes like the Huaula will probably not survive the 21st century. Most likely they will become integrated into a larger people group. Meanwhile, some of their leaders will likely feel that any spiritual change away from their traditional religion is a threat to them as a people. There are no Christian resources in their heart language.

Outreach Ideas
There are a couple of believers among the Huaula people who can be used by God to be His ambassadors to this small tribe.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray that believers among the Huaula people will walk as Jesus walked, and be a bright light shining among a discouraged people.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray that the Huaula people will have a hunger and thirst for righteousness and truth that will lead them to Jesus Christ. Pray for believers to go to them. Pray for a disciple-making movement among this unreached people group.
