The Gujur are located in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and several states in northeastern India. In addition, the Gujarat district of western India is named after the historic Gujur peoples. Ever since their conversion to Islam in the eleventh century, the Gujur have been bound by a life of poverty, illiteracy, and social oppression. In general, they are a simple, inoffensive people with a generous, hospitable nature.
To accept the Christian Gospel means to disturb established ways of living and relating within the community.
Workers are needed to carry the Gospel message to this community, using means such as films, recordings and stories from Scripture.
There are few Christian believers among the Gujuri community, but pray for the beginnings of the church, followers of Jesus. Pray they will honor Jesus with their lives, and become mature disciples. Pray the Lord will give Gujar families understanding and responsive hearts as they hear about the love of Christ. Pray they will be able to improve their standard of living, and have good schools available for their children.
"Tell of His glory among the nations, His wonderful deeds among all the peoples. For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised." 1 Chronicles 16:24-25
