Mali (Hindu traditions) in India

The Mali are industrious workers and are known for their bravery in the armed forces. There are different Mali subgroups according to their occupation. For example, Mali farmers are known as Baghban, those who cut and sell grass are called Sasia Mali and those growing flowers are Phool Mali. Many Malis live in towns and keep vegetable or flower gardens. The Mali are also known for the preparation of maur or marriage crown both for the bride and the bridegroom at marriages.

Ministry Obstacles

The Mali peoples live in most parts of India, but few are in the states where the church is strongest.

Outreach Ideas

Believers can have public showings of the JESUS Film in Mali communities to introduce them to Him.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray that believers will seek to be a blessing to Mali family leaders, who can open the door for the entire people group to follow Jesus.

Pray for the entire people group

* Pray that great signs and wonders will be performed among the Mali to lead many to understand the goodness of the Lord. * Pray for groups of believers to regularly pray for the Mali until they have their own church planting movement. * Pray for networks of believing families and fellowships that will throw the doors open for others to follow Jesus.

Scripture Focus

"All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations will worship before You." Psalm 22:27
