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

 Unreached of the Day: Darzi, Muslim of Pakistan

Darzi, Muslim of Pakistan
The Darzis derive their name from the Persian word 'to sew' or darzan. Sometimes the Darzi are known by the name Darji or Khayyat in India where most of their community lives. Darzis are most commonly tailors. As tailors they enjoy close relationships with other Muslim tradesmen. They prefer adult marriages and offer children's inheritance privileges to both sons and daughters. Men will sometimes wear a kurtapyjama and women a salwar-kameez.

Ministry Obstacles
The Darzi speak a number of languages, as most communities do in South Asia. Each language subgroup may require its own church planting project.

Outreach Ideas
Because of the Darzi's openness to business and upward social status, this is a great opportunity to offer outside assistance to educational or other development projects.

Pray for the followers of Christ
The Darzi have not reported any Christians to the census, in any country of residence. However, please be in prayer for those who will soon come to saving faith in Christ. They will need prayer support.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray that the Darzi community will not be satisfied with a religion that offers no possibility of a personal relationship with a God who loves them.

Scripture Focus
"I will also make you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring my salvation to the ends of the earth." Isaiah 49:6
