Gawaria of India

Viewing 1/23/2017

Gawaria of India

The Gawaria consider their ancestry to be from the three brothers Tapasvi Singh, Lakhi Singh and Bhumi Singh, who ruled at some point of time near Jodhpur in Rajasthan. They claim equal status with other nomadic and semi-nomadic communities. Their literacy level is very low due to poverty and their nomadic lifestyle.

Ministry Obstacles

The Gawaria speak several languages, as most communities do in India. Evangelistic and church planting strategies need to accommodate this.

Outreach Ideas

Low literacy rates suggest oral means of communication, using scriptural stories, films, and recordings.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There may be no believers among the Gawaria today, but pray for those that will soon emerge. Pray they will be properly instructed in the faith, and that God will give them capable pastors to help them mature as believers.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for workers to take the Gospel message to each individual in the Gawaria community. Pray the Lord will prepare them to understand, and to believe.

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
