Brahui in Pakistan

Brahui in Pakistan

The Brahui were once a powerful people who led various tribes together to overthrow a dynasty of Hindu kings. For hundreds of years, the Brahui have been a nomadic, shepherding people, moving their flocks throughout the year. Over time, the shepherds banded together into shepherding houses, known as khalks. As their nomadic ways decreased with the formation of small towns and villages, the khalks put their flocks under the care of an expert shepherd. This frees others to create income through farming.

Ministry Obstacles

As a nomadic people of a harsh land, the Brahui are difficult to keep up with. Workers need to heavily adapt to the Brahui lifestyle. In addition, their Islamic beliefs do not make room for a risen Savior.

Outreach Ideas

Though literacy is low, audio and visual mediums could be very effective in reaching the Brahui.

Scripture Focus

"Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever;"  Psalm 146:6

Scripture Prayer

Pray that God’s wonderous works of creation will draw many from this people group to the Throne of Grace.

Prayer Focus

Pray that there would soon be a community of believers that will multiply into a movement to Christ. Pray for the Brahui to come to know Jesus as the ultimate Good Shepherd. Pray for the Lord to bless their economic activities and that they would give him praise.
