The name Halwakki refers to milk and rice. Not surprisingly, animal husbandry (for milk) and horticulture (for rice) are their main occupations. They use both traditional and modern medicines in their communities, and the people are allowed to marry cousins. Their language is Kannada, and most of the Halwakki Wakkal people live in Karnataka, which is a southwestern state on the coast of the Arabian Sea.
The Halwakki Wakkal people practice Hinduism. Religious systems often stand in the way of seeking and finding the true Lord of lords.
Pray that the young people would come across gospel materials and internet resources that would lead them to the Lord. The complete Bible is available in their language, Kannada.
"One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple." Psalm 27:4
Pray for eternal salvation to many from today’s people group.
May the Lord give Halwakki Wakkal communities a hunger for the truth and hearts that are open to him. Pray that while taking care of their animals and crops, the people may become grateful to the One who provides for them and their animals.
