"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

  Unreached of the Day: Giddikki of India

Giddikki of India
The Giddidki were traditionally fortune-tellers and alms-collectors, but now the selling of aluminum utensils and plastic boxes forms their main occupation. A few own land and are engaged in cultivation. There are also vegetable vendors, cycle repairers, collectors of old bottles, and daily-wage laborers among them. All males are given equal shares in the family property, while the eldest son succeeds as the head of the family. Their traditional community council, the latikuta, deals with cases such as adultery, theft, and intercommunity marriage. They mainly worship Durga, Lakshmi, Eswara, and Siddeswar. Thulajapur is their sacred center.

Ministry Obstacles
The Hindu Giddikki have little concept of a creator God, someone who stands outside his creation, yet is knowable as a person. A radical change in understanding is required.

Outreach Ideas
Please pray for prayer warriors to be raised up to pray for the many, many unreached communities of India. Pray the Giddikki community will not be overlooked as people pray.

Pray for the followers of Christ
None of the Giddikki community have reported themselves as Christians to the Indian census. There is a possibility of a few secret believers, but Christ is almost completely unknown among this people group. Pray the Lord will begin to stir the hearts of many to know they need forgiveness for their sin, and that forgiveness is available through the person and work of Jesus Christ.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray these poor people will find ways to make themselves more employable. They need to acquire new skills.

Scripture Focus
"He will have compassion on the poor and needy, And the lives of the needy He will save." Psalm 72:13
