 Unreached of the Day: 03/12/2012 (Monday) - Bishnoi of India


Bishnoi of India
The Bishnoi are a community of nature worshippers. The guru who founded the sect directed the worship of lord Vishnu (Bishnu), hence the name Bishnoi. On one day in the year 1730, 363 Bishnoi individuals voluntarily gave up their own lives in order to spare the cutting of trees growing near their village. The first lady to resist the tree cutters said, "If a tree is saved even at the cost of one's head, it's worth it." The axe intended for the tree severed her head, the first of 363 sacrifices.

Ministry Obstacles
The worldview of this Hindu/Animist group is very different than the worldview of a monotheist who acknowledges the creator God.

Outreach Ideas
Relationships must be built between believers and the Bishnoi.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray for the Christian believers that will soon emerge from the Bishnoi community, that they will be granted the gift of faith to believe and accept the gift of eternal life offered by Jesus Christ.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray for the Bishnoi, that they will transfer their allegiance from the creation to the Creator.

"I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples." Psalm 108:3
