Mussali in Pakistan

Unreached of the Day  8/14/2021

Mussali in Pakistan

pronounced: moo-SAH-lee

Indigenous Hindus were forcibly converted to Islam and given the derisive name "Mussali." The Pakistani Mussalis are concentrated in Punjab Province, though they live in the other provinces as well. Those in India are usually in Rajasthan, a state that is on the border with Pakistan. The Mussali people are sanitation workers who do the most menial and disgusting jobs in Pakistan. They are looked down upon by other Pakistani communities. They are unhappy with their lot and they want more out of life.

Ministry Obstacles

Pakistan is a very closed nation. People cannot go there on a missionary visa. People are also suspicious of anyone from a "Christian" nation. Muslim people are taught that Christianity is founded on a holy book that has been corrupted by bad translation efforts.

Outreach Ideas

It is possible for someone to go to the Mussali people with skills that would give the Pakistani government reason to allow them in the country: medical or teaching skills for example.

Scripture Focus

"Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything he does is right and all his ways are just. And those who walk in pride he is able to humble."  Daniel 4:37

Scripture Prayer

Pray for leaders of this people group to repent before the Lord Almighty like this king.

Prayer Focus

There are no followers of Christ among the Mussali people, so pray for this to soon change. * Pray that the Mussali people will have the blessings of spiritual hunger that will lead them to Jesus Christ. * Pray for the Lord to thrust out workers to this untended field. * Pray for the Lord to raise up the Mussali communities with both physical and spiritual blessings that will show other communities what He can do for any people who submit to His ways.
