Description: The Tausug are a sea-faring Malay people, whose name means “people of the sea-current.” They are scattered throughout coastal areas of the Sulu Archipelago (which is enclosed by the Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia), though they have become concentrated on the island of Jolo, just south of Mindanao.

Prayer Points:
• In a recent showing of the Jesus Film, the leaders of over 100 Tausug families accepted the invitation to receive Jesus. Pray for wisdom in how best to follow up with these leaders, and that many extended family-based fellowships might be established.
• The economic conditions of the region force most adult men to look for work overseas. This problem has affected the ability of missionaries to train leaders. Pray for creative solutions to this issue.
• Many new believers are forced to flee from their communities. Pray for a permanent witness, especially on the island of Jolo.

A Prayer: Heavenly Father, may the islands of the Tausug resound with your praises and bring glory to your name.
Each year 12,000 Tausug die without Christ.
