Rind Baloch in Pakistan

pronounced: rind bah-LOACH

Baloch peoples like the Rind tribe generally live in remote mountainous and desert regions, which provides protection from invasions. They live mainly in the Balochistan region of the southeastern-most edge of the Iranian plateau in Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan. Life is hard for the Baloch tribes, and things are even more difficult since they are often fighting against the Pakistani government. There is not enough water in this region; as a result, farming and livestock herding is difficult.

Ministry Obstacles

Pakistan does not allow church planting missionaries into their country. The number of believers who can share Christ in this Muslim nation is very small.

Outreach Ideas

The tradition of a Baloch mother singing lullabies to her children has played an important role in the transfer of knowledge from generation to generation for many centuries. The Rind Baloch enjoy stories and songs about their military victories. Is it possible for someone to come up with culturally appropriate music, skits, and oral stories that honor the Lord for the Rind Baloch people? Since it's very difficult for outsiders to enter and stay in this land, perhaps songs and recorded stories can be downloadable on the internet.

Scripture Focus

"Don’t let foreigners who commit themselves to the Lord say, “The Lord will never let me be part of his people.” And don’t let the eunuchs say, “I’m a dried-up tree with no children and no future.”"  Isaiah 56:3

Scripture Prayer

Pray that many from today’s people group will put all their hope in the Lord.

Prayer Focus

As far as we know, there are no believers among the Rind Baloch people in Pakistan. Pray for a faithful group of intercessors to come together and intercede for these Muslims until there is a church planting movement among them. * Pray that the Rind Baloch may be open to the gospel and to the Savior. * Pray that God will provide workers who speak the Balochi language to work with the Baloch peoples. * Pray that God will show the Baloch peoples the way to live together in peace and prosperity.
