Baghban means "one who looks after the garden." This unreached people group lives mainly in Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, and Uttarakhand. They grow, harvest, and sell their crops in the markets, some as "green grocers" in their own businesses. Others hold government and business positions of influence in their respective districts. They are a family-oriented, hardworking, and industrious people. They value education for both boys and girls, and some have become teachers and doctors.
Baghbans in India are Hindus and worship many gods. Their faith is in gods that hold no power, but they live in parts of India where few, if any, know the God of power and mercy.
Imagine how glad they would be to learn about a sovereign God who loves them and has made a way for them to be forgiven and spend eternity as his children. Imagine the relief they would feel to know that God uses tragic situations to lead them to himself. However, it will take bold, loving believers to go to them.
"You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?" Psalm 56:8
Pray for members of this people group to turn to the Lord with their sorrows and trust Him to wipe away their tears and replace it with eternal joy.
Pray for spiritual breakthrough among Bahgbans and that whole families would turn to the Lord. Pray for workers to go to their communities.
