Dawn

Sent from Portswood Church, Southampton

Dawn works to reach unreached peoples in the Indian Ocean Islands with the gospel.

Dawn’s platform ministry is working with mother-tongue language resources. Up until now this has mainly been teaching literacy and numeracy to women with little or no formal education. However, Dawn is actively involved in hands-on work in a strategy to get more biblical resources into Island languages in different media forms.

Could you partner with Dawn in this work?

Praise God for the technology which has meant that the Bible translation project on the Indian Ocean Islands has been able to keep going, despite how much Covid-19 infections have spread. Please pray for all those involved in the project, and for continued funding so that more of the Bible can be translated into the local language.

Please pray for some missionaries who have recently joined a ministry team on the Indian Ocean Islands. Please also pray for healing and a good recovery for others on the team who have been suffering from Covid-19 infection.

The Indian Ocean Islands are going through a second wave of Covid-19, with cases rising and some islands preventing people travelling to or from them. Please pray for healing for those infected, that transmission of the virus will be stopped, and that cases will fall. Please also pray that missionaries who are hoping to begin ministry on the Islands in the next few weeks will be able to travel there.

Indian Ocean Islands

These beautiful tropical islands are 99.9% Muslim and for security reasons we refer to this area as the ‘Indian Ocean Islands’ rather than naming individual islands. Islam is deeply rooted on these islands and to be an islander is to be a Muslim. There are a small number of believers on each island but many follow Jesus secretly for fear of rejection and persecution.
