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

 Unreached of the Day: Bhaina of India

Bhaina of India
The Bhaina community lives on the fertile plains of Raigarh and Bilaspur districts of Madhya Pradesh. They work as farmers and as laborers. Some of their marriage rituals are betrothal, circumambulation of the sacred pillar, washing of the feet, blessing and giving of gifts, and applying of vermilion. The Saora, Bhuia, Rout, and Lohar communities accept food and water from the Bhaina, who in turn do not accept food and water from them. They receive the services of the Brahman, barber and washerman. Their literacy rate is quite low. Their principal deity is Nakti Devi. They worship clan deities, village deities like Dulhadeo, Thakur Dec, regional deities and deities of the wider Hindu pantheon.

Ministry Obstacles
Lack of workers willing and able to minister to the unreached communities of India is an obstacle to the progress of the Gospel.

Outreach Ideas
Perhaps workers can help the Bhaina become more productive as farmers and livestock producers. Building such bridges of friendship can lead to opportunities to share Christ.

Pray for the followers of Christ
A few of the Bhaina have identified themselves as Christians to the Indian census. Please pray for teachers to help these Christians understand clearly what it means to know Christ as Savior and Lord, and to be his disciple.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray for a rising literacy rate for the Bhaina, especially for the youth. Pray that parents will understand the importance of providing a good education for their children.

Scripture Focus
"...that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God; there is no one else." 1 Kings 8:60
