Rabari means outsiders. This is because of their occupation. Rabari's main business used to be raising livestock. These livestock need lots of space and the people have lived outside the villages. At present, the Rabari have settled down in their original communities, and are engaging in commerce and agriculture. Rabari are the remnant of Huns, who invaded India in the fifth century AD.
To become followers of Christ a person risks losing their place in their community, and even within their family.
Christians need to build bridges of friendship and trust. Helping with material and physical needs is one way to do this.
Pray the followers of Christ who will soon develop within the Rabari community to be hungry to learn and practice the fundamentals of the faith, being zealous to follow Christ. Pray the Rabari community will live in harmony with their neighbors, and be able to properly provide for their families.
"You purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation." Revelation 5:9
