Ansari in Pakistan

The Ansari people are noted for their friendliness and their helpfulness. They are predominately artisans by trade and are mostly poor and illiterate. The weaving of silk is a common trade skill of these people. Although traditionally weavers and textile sellers, the Ansaris are now involved in a wide range of small business enterprises.

Ministry Obstacles

Pakistan is a country that is very hostile to the gospel. It is almost impossible for believers to stay long enough to help people find their way to the cross, and be discipled in the ways of Jesus Christ.

Outreach Ideas

The friendliness of the Ansaris can open doors for believers to develop closeness and opportunities to share the gospel.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There are no known Ansaris who follow Christ in Pakistan. Pray for the Lord to find a way to draw these people into his family.

Pray for the entire people group

* Pray for the Lord to bless the Ansaris in such a way that they will know He is the one to follow. * Pray for the Holy Spirit to give Ansari people a hunger for righteousness and holiness that will turn their hearts to Jesus. * Pray for the Lord to find a way to get His children into Ansari communities so that they can enjoy the blessings of the Savior.

Scripture Focus

"For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls." 1 Peter 2:25
