Orang Asli Ministry
This is a ministry to reach out to the tribal people groups of West Malaysia, also known as Orang Asli. As this ministry reaches out to different villages around Raub and surrounding districts; many have been blessed with the Word and work of God in their lives. The Orang Asli ministry has a vision to teach the Orang Asli to be men and women of God.
The Orang Asli peoples meet every Sunday for worship in their own villages and conduct their own Children and Youth Ministry. This is an indigenous church led by Orang Asli pastors in their own communities.
English Literacy Programme
Every Friday a group of Orang Asli children and their mothers eagerly wait for the English Literacy class to begin. At the same time every week, a team of volunteers from FGA KL are on their way from Kuala Lumpur eagerly anticipating their arrival in the first of four Orang Asli villages. They are relieved when they make it on time not wishing to keep the children and adults waiting any longer. After teaching in one village, the team proceeds to the next village the same day. Two more villages are visited on Saturday before the team returns to Kuala Lumpur.
The class involves reading and writing of simple English words using much repetition and word recognition. This teaching method using the “Firm Foundation” has proven to be very effective. The volunteers who teach English have been amazed at the progress made by the Orang Asli people in speaking, reading and writing English after several lessons.
