Indonesia is comprised of 4,000 inhabited islands straddling the equator from the Indian to the Pacific Oceans. Indonesia is the world's most populated Muslim country. It is also the 4th largest country in the world, and one of the most un-evangelized nations on earth. The Balinese have been in the grip of Satan for thousands of years. There are many places in the world that are as spiritually dark, but there are none darker.

Bali is one of 33 Indonesian provinces. Bali's 3.2 million residents are mostly Hindu (93%) and Muslim (6%).


In one of the most savage slaughters of the 20th century, the Khmer Rouge attempted to eliminate all religion from Cambodian society. Targeted for death were the educated, former civil servants, and all people of faith. In the end, millions perished including nearly all Christians. Now that there is increasing freedom of religion, the gospel is being reintroduced to the Cambodian people.

The Filipino people are very religious. The Philippines is one of the largest Catholic countries on earth, but many cults and false religions flourish. Large numbers of Catholics are influenced by animism and witchcraft, and several charismatic networks have large numbers of followers.

Yet, there is strong growth in doctrinally sound churches, and those churches are sending significant numbers of missionaries into mainland Asia.
