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?

Latest Prayer News

Please pray for the members of the future healthcare team on the Indian Ocean Islands as they prepare to begin internships with local hospitals ahead of the formal launch of the team in the autumn. Pray that they will learn how they can best serve in the Islands’ healthcare system, and for more workers to join the team. 

Praise God for the opportunities that workers on the Indian Ocean Islands have had to speak to friends and neighbours about Jesus during Ramadan. Please pray that they will be led by the Holy Spirit as they seek to keep those conversations going. 

AIM team members serving among the Indian Ocean Islands have also contracted Covid-19 and although recovering, a number are still feeling the after effects many weeks later. Pray for full restoration to health and for renewed energy.

Recently Covid-19 has swept through the Islands with devastating effects. The healthcare systems are not able to cope with severe cases and many have died. Pray for God’s mercy on the Islands, for Islanders to cry out to him and be saved.

Several different groups of workers serve on the ground in the Indian Ocean Islands, and others are seeking to be involved from a distance. Please pray for these groups as they seek to work together to bless those living on the Islands and share the gospel with them.

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.
