Baloch in Pakistan

Balochistan was once a land of flowing rivers where the Baloch people prospered, growing crops and tending their sheep, cattle, and goats. Today, however, it is a barren desert, making life difficult. The Baloch are semi-nomadic, moving from mountain areas to lowlands according to the seasons and the availability of water and good soil.

Ministry Obstacles

Reaching the Baloch is no simple task. In addition to the harsh, remote environment in which they live, they are culturally isolated. They have their own code of living ("Balochiway") and they are Sunni Muslims. Pray for the Lord to break through their cultural and spiritual barriers.

Outreach Ideas

While the New Testament has been translated into the Balochi language, the full Bible is still not available. Providing God's word for this unreached people group will give them the opportunity to hear the voice of their Creator and receive his invitation to eternal life.

Scripture Focus

"The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made."  Psalm 145:9

Scripture Prayer

Pray that many from this people group will understand that He is good to everyone, and His compassion has no end.

Prayer Focus

God is at work, preparing to establish his Kingdom and Church among the Baloch. Pray for the Holy Spirit to continue that work. Ask God to move powerfully and unmistakably among the Baloch in such a way that it will lead to a movement to Christ.
