The Sunda live in West Java in an area that is sometimes called the “rice basket of Indonesia.” The ground is good and grows many crops, including rice and tea. There are very few Christian materials available in their language, but there has been a growing interest in the story of Jesus. Please pray that all of the people of Java would hear and respond to the message of Jesus Christ.
