Aguri in India

Unreached of the Day  1/23/2021

Aguri in India

From the villages, the Aguri people are often moving to cities like Kolkotta, or even New York! Traditionally they have been largely an agricultural group, divided into two sub-castes, the lower of which are cow herders. As Kshatriyas, they are not high caste, but they have favorable status.

Ministry Obstacles

Attacks by Hindi radicals on Christ followers in India have increased since the change of the ruling party in 2014. This makes it extremely difficult and dangerous for believers to reach communities without a gospel witness like the Aguri.

Outreach Ideas

The Aguri have access to the JESUS Film, so pray that those who watch it would share with their villages and larger communities and this would lead to Discovery Bible Studies.

Scripture Focus

"And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces and said, The LORD, he is God; the LORD, he is God."  1 Kings 18:39

Scripture Prayer

Pray that today’s people group will understand the vast power and goodness of the Lord.

Prayer Focus

Pray that the Aguri followers of Christ would hold strong in their faith. Generally the Aguri are a very aggressive and hostile group. Pray that the Lord would soften their hearts to treat each other with love and grace. Pray that they would cast their eyes on Jesus and understand that he holds life's answers. Pray for a movement to Christ among the Aguri people this decade.
