Reaching the Unreached in West Malaysia

The Orang Asli are an indigenous group in West Malaysia who live off the land far from educational and economic opportunities. Many of them have never heard about God. Their isolated lives in remote forests and villages mean that the children of Orang Asli have limited access to good schools. Without education, these children will remain in poverty. This is increasingly important since the traditional hunting and foraging lands of the Orang Asli are disappearing as economic development grows in Western Malaysia. Children need to learn practical skills applicable in the modern economy. As Archbishop Moon Hing says, “They need to learn how to take care of animals, not simply shoot them.” The Anglican Diocese of Malaysia will purchase an old house and renovate it for use as a Christian hostel for girls. The house has been identified and has 1,400 square feet of space. It is located adjacent to a boys’ hostel, completed three years ago. Most importantly, the ten female Orang Asli students will be mentored by members of four local Anglican churches. The four churches share a vision for providing holistic training and guidance for secondary students and provide a counterpoint to the growing Islamization occurring in the region. As parishioners open their hearts to the Orang Asli, both groups will encounter God in powerful new ways.
