Ganda in India

Unreached of the Day  4/05/2021

Ganda in India

The Ganda of India are a Dalit people, the lowest caste. Unlike some Dalits, however, the Ganda are mostly closed to the gospel. They are farmers who marry young and live in various parts of India including Chhattisgarh State. They speak Odia and Hindi, two of India's major languages.

Ministry Obstacles

Ministry obstacles include the stigma of caste status, lack of education, devotion to Hindu gods, and little Christian witness.

Outreach Ideas

The Bible and media tools are available in Odia and Hindi. Outreach ideas include Jesus comic book distribution, showing the JESUS Film, one-on-one evangelism with the Evangecube, and the wordless book. Believers can also take the gospel to them through skits, stories, and songs.

Scripture Focus

"For you, O God, have tested us; you have tried us as silver is tried."  Psalm 66:10

Scripture Prayer

Pray for the Lord to test and purify today’s people group.

Prayer Focus

Pray for faithfulness and witness of the few Ganda believers. Pray that they would remain strong in their faith, thereby attracting inquiries concerning the Savior. Pray that the Ganda would become open to the gospel and would access Christian literature and media, leading to a movement to Christ. Pray for the Lord to bless the Ganda people economically and spiritually this decade.
