There are over 245,000 Cham in Cambodia and only 0.01% are Christian. The Cham are devout followers of Islam. Cham society is matrilineal and the maternal uncle usually holds the position of authority in the family. Many of the Cham live as farmers, fishermen, boat builders and or engage in light commerce.
Engagement // What’s Happening Now
There are fewer than 30 Christians among the Cham. Pray for boldness among the Cham believers, that they may feel empowered by the Holy Spirit to share the gospel with their families and communities.
Sustainability // The Bigger Story
Cambodia has seen much growth in Khmer Cambodians coming to Jesus. Ask the Lord to touch the heart of Khmer Christians to reach out to their Cham neighbors in love and with the Good News.
Partnership // Move Beyond
Please spend a few minutes in prayer for:
- Pray for God to send laborers to the Western Cham of Cambodia.
- Currently, a bible has not been translated into Cham. Pray for a complete Bible to be translated into Cham.
