In the past, when ceremonies and celebrations were being planned in the villages of Bangladesh, it was the Nagarchi who were called upon to serve as drummers. Today, many of them have given up their drums to farm and raise livestock in central Bangladesh. Reaching this small, unique people group is a challenge. They embody what Jesus meant when he commissioned us to go into all the world to make disciples.
Most of the Nagarchi are Hindu. The Muslim Nagarchi mingle with the Hindus and have even adopted some of their religious practices. They need their eyes opened to see that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life and that there is no way to peace with God other than through him.
It will take bold, loving workers to go to these Muslims in Bangladesh.
"The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever." Isaiah 40:8
Meditate on this verse, and pray that members of this people group embrace it.
Pray for workers willing to venture to this harvest field and share the good news of salvation with the Nagarchi. Ask the Lord to prepare the hearts of the Nagarchi to receive the gospel message and pray for many families to respond to his invitation. Ask the Lord to establish a church planting movement among them.
