About Malaysia

Geographically Malaysia is divided into two parts with West Malaysia being attached to the Kra Peninsula, which is also host to Thailand, and East Malaysia which takes up the northern third of the Island of Borneo. It is home to 186 People Groups, 83 of whom remain unreached according to the Joshua Project. The largest People Group is the Malays who are very proud of their cultural heritage and devoted to Islam although many also believe in and seek out witchdoctors.

The largest challenge to indigenous mission groups is the rise in power of the Islamists who seek to place Sharia law over constitutional law and force all practitioners of the more moderate Islam currently in vogue to adopt their radical form and force out other competing religions.
