Introduction / History

The Kalumpang people are located within the jungles of central Western Sulawesi. This is a new province and they were origianlly classified as Southern Sulawesi. There are several large villages, such as Kalumpang, Buttu, Tambing-Tambing and Batuisi.


What are Their Lives Like?

The Kalumpang people are primarily agrarian. Small scale gardens are used to produce the food that they need to survive and wild animals are hunted for food. There is a strong sense of community within this region.


What are Their Beliefs?

This area is predominantly Christian, however their understanding of the Gospel is limited by not having a copy of the Gospel in their mother tongue. Animism continues to play a large part in peoples life. There is also a small contingency of Sunni Muslims.


What are Their Needs?

There is a lack of education and medical facilities within this region. Consequently, many turn to animism and witchdoctors for help. This in turn produces a barrier for the gospel work within this area.


Prayer Points

* That the stronghold of the devil will be broken.
