Tarafdar in Bangladesh

Tarafdar in Bangladesh

The Tarafdar people are small in number, but they have left their mark on Bangladesh. One has been a noted historian. Others have been Olympic athletes representing Bangladesh while another chronicled Bangladesh's 1971 war for independence from Pakistan.

Ministry Obstacles

The Tarafdar people can hold their heads high in Bangladesh, perhaps too high for their own good. A people with so many accomplishments often ignore their need for total dependence on God. It will also be hard to find anyone from this community since they are so few in number.

Outreach Ideas

To see the Tarafdar people reached for Christ will require much prayer before anyone attempts to go to them. First they will need to pray to meet people from this community, and then they will need to pray for spiritual openness.

Scripture Focus

"To whom then will you liken God, or what likeness compare with him? An idol! A craftsman casts it, and a goldsmith overlays it with gold and casts for it silver chains."  Isaiah 40:18-19

Scripture Prayer

Pray that this people group will soon understand that they can never form an idol that compares with the Lord.

Prayer Focus

Pray for the Lord to have his hand of blessings on the Tarafdar community so that they will know they need him. Pray for their elders to welcome Christ's ambassadors and embrace the message of the gospel. Pray for a movement to Christ among them in Bangladesh.
