Devanga in India

Unreached of the Day  2/21/2021

Devanga in India

The Devanga are known mainly for two crafts: weaving and fine crafts. The entire family participates. Men weave using looms, women spin yarn and thread, and the children also help in the process.

Ministry Obstacles

The religion of the Devanga is Hinduism, so they focus on many gods and goddesses, but they primarily worship the goddess Banashankari. Should they decide to follow Christ, they would become social outcasts. Those who reach out to them would be wise to invite entire families to follow Christ rather than individuals.

Outreach Ideas

The Devanga People are very creative in their weaving. Perhaps their creative energies could serve as a pathway to bringing them into the kingdom of God. Questions like "Who gave mankind creativity?" would be appropriate.

Scripture Focus

"The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenant and obey his demands."  Psalm 25:10

Scripture Prayer

Thank the Lord that He leads with love and faithfulness! Pray that many from today’s people group will discover that and act upon it.

Prayer Focus

Pray that Devanga believers will put Christ first and take seriously his great commission. Pray that God will lead them to seekers whose hearts are sensitive. Lift up the entire Devanga group and ask that they accept Jesus together as a community.
