Pray for the Gandharv of Inida
Gandharv of India
The 17,000 Gandharv People Group has never had the opportunity to hear the Good News about Jesus Christ.
The primary occupation of the Gandharv today is agriculture and military service. Many of the young men join the Indian Army and send money to their families. The lifestyle or the Gandharv varies depending on their ownership of land.
Some Gandharv possess land, which they use for farming wheat, lentils, millet, cotton, corn and vegetables. They also raise animals such as chickens, goats, and water buffaloes for their family's use. Other non-landowning, uneducated Gandharv live at the poverty level.
The landowners tend to be more educated and middle class. The landless Gandharv live at the poverty level.
Located in the Northeast corner of India in the villages of Bihar and Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, the Gandharv have lived and died for thousands of years without ever knowing that there is One, True God who fought for them—that there's a Savior who suffered and died for them.
The main languages of the Gandharv are Bhojpuri and Hindi. Many Christian resources are available in both languages including a complete Bible and JESUS Film. Sadly, no one has ever given any of these resources to this unreached and still, unengaged, people group.
Will you pray for someone to go and tell the Gandharv about a Savior who came for them? Would you ask the Lord and pray and seek His face and ask if that person is you?
