Indonesian in Vietnam

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
There are not many Indonesians in Vietnam. Since the economies of the two countries are at the same level, Indonesians have little motivation to move to Vietnam. They would also need to learn the Vietnamese language, which is very different than Bahasa.

Where are they located?
The Indonesians in Vietnam live mainly in Hanoi and Saigon.

What are their lives like?
Indonesians who work outside their country gravitate to jobs in the oil and mining industries. Indonesians keep a low profile. They know that jobs are sometimes scarce in Vietnam, so they try to blend in rather than risk being viewed as people who take away jobs from the local Vietnamese population.

What are their beliefs?
Indonesians in Vietnam fit in with the local culture, but they retain their Sunni Muslim faith.

What are their needs?
Muslim Indonesians need to know that Jesus Christ offers them eternal life, and life to the full to those who will call upon His name.

Prayer Points
* Ask God to strengthen, encourage and protect the small number of Indonesian believers in Vietnam. Pray that they will be salt and light to their neighbors.
* Pray for the Holy Spirit to give Indonesians in Vietnam a spiritual hunger that will lead them to the victorious savior.
* Ask the Lord to bring forth a triumphant Indonesian church for the glory of His name.
* Pray for a disciple making movement among the Indonesian people in Vietnam.
