Garasia in India

Unreached of the Day  4/09/2021

Garasia in India

The Garasia are believed to be descendants of Rajputs who lost their land to invaders. These Rajputs moved to the western Indian states of Rajasthan and Gujarat where they live today. The majority of the Garasia are farmers who own small to medium plots of land. Unlike many peoples of India, young people choose their own spouses. The newly married couple lives with or near the groom's parents. The Hindu faith of the Garasia is heavily mixed with folk religion. They believe in magic, charms and that evil spirits inhabit the objects of nature.

Ministry Obstacles

The Garasia see themselves as Rajputs, sons of kings and rulers, in the Hindu caste system. Pride can get in the way of one trusting in Jesus Christ as Savior.

Outreach Ideas

Believers can show the JESUS Film in the Garasia's main language of Adiwasi Garasia.

Scripture Focus

"God shall bless us; let all the ends of the earth fear him!"  Psalm 67:7

Scripture Prayer

Pray for fear and worship to rise up from all peoples in the 2020s.

Prayer Focus

Pray that the small group of Garasia believers would be established in the faith and share the gospel with their families and friends. Ask the Lord to call willing people to share Christ with the Garasia. Ask the Holy Spirit to soften the hearts of the Garasia toward Christ so that they will be receptive to his ways. Pray the Lord would raise up a Disciple Making Movement among the Garasia in this decade.
