The Koshti people weave fine silk and cotton cloth goods worn by the wealthy. According to their legends, they are descendants of a famous Hindu saint named Markandi Rishi. To make a long story short, they were blessed by the gods. No doubt this prosperous community still considers themselves blessed by the gods.
The Koshti people have a strong devotion to Ganesh and other Hindu gods. There are spirit beings behind these gods that will keep the Koshti people away from the Savior.
Believers who purchase weaved goods can have regular contact with members of the Koshti community and become friends with them. Eventually they can earn the right to speak into their lives.
Pray for the few Koshti believers to have strength and faith.
* Pray for church-planting teams to work among them as there are no known mission agencies/churches working among them. * Pray for the setting up of income-generating projects. * Pray a good response to the Christian radio program and the JESUS Film.
"And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed." Genesis 12:3
