Mahratta Shinde in India

Unreached of the Day  5/29/2021

Mahratta Shinde in India

pronounced: SHIN-deh mah-RAH-tah

Mahrattas were famous for being warriors, including the Shinde sub group. Today they mainly work in agriculture or business. Almost all of the Shinde Mahrattas still in in their original homeland which we now call Maharashtra.

Ministry Obstacles

There are few if any believers from the Shinde Mahratta community, so they will need to hear about Jesus from "outsiders."

Outreach Ideas

There are many believers in Mumbai, the key city in the state of Maharashtra. They can reach out to the Shinde Mahrattas and other unreached communities.

Scripture Focus

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. Ps 139:13-14

Scripture Prayer

Pray that this people group will understand and embrace that they are created by God, and that His ways are marvelous!

Prayer Focus

Pray that believers will demonstrate loving and honest behavior before the Shinde Mahrattas so that they will see how Christ can transform people. * Pray for workers to go to the Shinde Mahrattas, and for their hearts to be ready to receive their savior. * Pray for families of Mahratta believers loving and serving others to grow reproducing churches. * Pray for a chain reaction of families reaching families that results in thousands of new believers who share their faith with others.
