Brahui in Pakistan

pronounced: brah-WEE

The Brahui overthrew a dynasty of Hindu kings and rose to power in the 1600s. Brahui can be distinguished from their Pushtun and Baluchi neighbors by their Dravidian language, called Brahuidi. The number of Brahui nomads has consistently declined over the past hundred years, and today there are many fully-settled villages dependent on underground water irrigation. Divorce is rare among the Brahui. The ideal family consists of married sons who live with their parents. Most Brahui are Sunni Muslims, and are deeply rooted in their faith.

Ministry Obstacles

There is much spiritual darkness to overcome, in Pakistan.

Outreach Ideas

Much sustained, focused prayer is needed for all the peoples of Pakistan. Prayer to prepare hearts, and prayer to overcome the darkness with the light of Christ's Gospel.

Prayer Items

There are few if any Brahui who know and follow Jesus Christ. But pray for those that the Lord will soon call to himself. Pray they will have Scripture available, as well as other resources to help them grow. Pray for teachers, also. These believers will need outside prayer support. Ask the Lord to raise up and send out a new generation of fruitful, multiplying witnesses from among the Brahui people. Pray for the Brahui people to be able to live in a peaceful Pakistan. Pray also they will have the light of the Gospel of Christ widely and freely available, overcoming the darkness that has prevailed for so long in Pakistan.

Scripture Focus

"And you shall be my witnesses, both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." Acts 1:8
