A Time to Fast and Pray

As guests in a Muslim country, we have grown to love our Muslim friends and neighbors. This weekend, out of this love for them and our great respect for God, we are planning to pray and fast for Indonesia and our Muslim friends. We will also use this time to focus on looking for ways that God would use us to care for them.

We plan to fast from all food and all drinks, except water, from 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7 until 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8. We’ve picked these dates in August in order that our Fast would fall before Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting, which begins Aug. 21.

If you are interested in joining us, let us know and we can give you some ideas about which to pray. You can comment on our site or email us at


  1. I pitty the Muslims in the Western countries - when Ramadan falls into one of the summer months it is always so hard for them to fast from dust till dawn! They get up very early to grab some food and drink. Of course, not all of them are fasting, but those who do are under such pressure during that time :(
    I guess in Indonesia it is not that extreme because it is closer to the equator, but still...

  2. So stoked for you guys to be doing what God has called you to. Souls will enter the Kingdom because of your faithfulness!

  3. I can really hear your heart for those God has sent you to. I need to be better about praying too for God's hand to move mightily in the Japanese hearts!!!
