Sadgope Yadav in Bangladesh

Sadgope Yadav in Bangladesh

The Yadav peoples are rare! Unlike most agricultural people, their status is neither high nor low. Many of the Chasot, or Sadgope Yadavs, own land and work in agriculture and small businesses, and education does not usually go beyond secondary level for them. They are concentrated in West Bengal, though a good number also live farther east in Bangladesh.

Ministry Obstacles

Like other Yadav peoples, the Sadgopes have high enough status that it is hard to find those who can reach them without being looked down upon because most Bangladeshi believers are from low status communities. These Hindus also claim to be descendants of King Yadu, which gives them a sense of high honor.

Outreach Ideas

There are some believers in Kolkotta, the main city in West Bengal. They can reach over the border to the Sadgope Yadavs in Bangladesh.

Scripture Focus

"You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth, even those who sail on distant seas."  Psalm 65:5

Scripture Prayer

Thank the Lord that He is the hope of all the earth and the hope of all nations!

Prayer Focus

Pray for a spiritual hunger that will drive the Sadgope Yadavs to the loving arms of Jesus. Pray for workers who are filled with the fruit and the power of the Holy Spirit to go to the Sadgope Yadavs. Pray for a movement to Christ that will affect this community in Bangladesh and India.
