Bairwa in India

Unreached of the Day  3/30/2021

Bairwa in India

pronounced: BARE-wah

"Bairwa" means brave. The Bairwa are located in the fertile regions of the Indo-Gangetic plains of North India in the states of Rajasthan, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, and Jharkhand. They are an influential community. They are known for their skill in making mats and ropes. Feeling exploited by the higher castes, they have been involved in a struggle for social rights for the poor and farmers. Education has become an important means of progress, so the Bairwa emphasize education for their children. Vermilion, bangles and toe rings are some symbols of marriage for women. They are Hindus and worship many gods, goddesses and saints.

Ministry Obstacles

The worldview of Hinduism is very different than that of the Christian. Much has to change in a person's thinking to move from Hinduism to Christianity, but this is not impossible.

Outreach Ideas

Much prayer is needed to prepare the hearts and minds of the Hindu Bairwa to understand and believe that faith in Jesus is the only means of acceptance by a holy God. The way is narrow.

Scripture Focus

What joy for those you choose to bring near, those who live in your holy courts. What festivities await us inside your holy Temple. Ps 65:4

Scripture Prayer

Pray for many from this people group to find joy in the Lord.

Prayer Focus

As far as we know there probably are no Christians among the Bairwa at the present time. Pray that members of this community will come in contact with believers who will hear and obey the Spirit's prompting to share the Good News with them. Please pray this Hindu community will be given the gift of conviction of sin, and will realize their need for a Savior from sin. At the proper time, pray the Lord may reveal his Son, Jesus as this Savior.
