Sutradhar means "thread holder"; they are known for crafting beautiful wood doors, windows, boats, etc. Because of their artisanal skill, some of them work for entrepreneurs in cities. Those who are successful can get paid well, but the majority of Sutradhar are novices and struggle financially.
The Bangladeshis take Sutradhar territory without consent from the government. This forces the Sutradhar people to focus on defending themselves rather than higher matters.
Believers from outside Bangladesh can purchase their goods and sell them on the international market. This would give believers regular contact with this unreached people group and provide them with a better income.
"Let my prayer be counted as incense before you, and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice!" Psalm 141:2
Thank Him for making your prayers as precious as an incense offering. Thank Him that in praise, there is His presence.
Very few of the Sutradhar community are followers of Jesus. Pray for the many who will someday come to saving faith. Pray for the Lord to thrust out loving believers to the Sutradhar leading to an unstoppable movement to Christ. Pray that these Hindus would be exposed to the good news of Jesus and repent of their sin and follow the Messiah as their new master.
