The Yadav peoples, including the Rawats, claim that they are descended from the Hindu god Krishna. This and the fact that they deal with cattle and dairy products give them good status in the land where cows are considered holy. They also do farm work, growing wheat and other crops. Many of the Rawat Yadavs are well educated professionals who are a dominant people in their area, especially Bihar.
The Rawat Yadavs live in parts of India where the church is weak. This Yadav subgroup is concentrated in Bihar, though not limited to this state. Bihar has been called the "graveyard of mission" with good reason.
Believers from other farming communities can reach out to the Rawat Yadavs with oral stories of Jesus combined with copies of the JESUS Film and gospel recordings. Those who are genuinely interested in Christ can be discipled and taught to disciple others.
Pray that soon the Holy Spirit will move among Rawat Yadav clan leaders and draw them into a relationship with Him. * Pray for families of 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. * Pray for grace and truth expanding into the entire Rawat Yadav society as all believers learn to love others.
"For from the rising of the sun, even to its setting, My name will be great among the nations ... says the Lord of hosts." Malachi 1:11
