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.
O Lord, I give my life to you. I trust in you, my God! Do not let me be disgraced, or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat. Ps 25:1-2
Pray for many from today’s people group to give their entire lives to God.
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.
