The Bhangi, a Scheduled Caste, were traditionally associated with scavenging, sweeping, and basket making. The majority are employed by various municipal governments as scavengers, and a few of those living in cities are educated. Others make and sell bamboo goods or work as drummers.
The Bhangi speak several languages, as most communities do in South Asia. Separate church planting projects may be needed for each language.
The gospel of Christ needs to come to these people primarily in oral form. They need workers who know how to communicate the gospel in story form. They also need Christian videos and recordings to be made easily available.
"Declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose,’" Isaiah 46:10
Thank the Lord that He alone can tell the future, and His plans for today’s people group can never be stopped.
Pray for believers in Pakistan to reach out to this unreached people. Pray for a church planting movement among the Bhangi people in Sindh Province that will show other communities in Pakistan what Jesus Christ can do to transform people for the better. Pray for God to shed his abundant favor on the Bhangi people in such a way they would know that Jesus Christ provides a better life.
