Yadav (Hindu traditions) of India
The Yadav believe they are the descendants of king Yadu, from whom Krishna descended. Their traditional occupation is animal husbandry. They have expertise in oral traditions like sevagaridi, i.e. group singing in praise of Lord Vishnu. They freely share wells, roads, schools, crematoria, temple, etc. with other villagers.
Our natural human pride often prevents us from humbly accepting the free gift offered through faith in Christ.
Christians need to build bridges of friendship with the Yadav. Their interest in oral traditions suggests an oral approach to the presentation of the Gospel message.
There are few if any believers among the Yadav today, but pray for the fellowshipping believers that will soon emerge from this community. Pray they will be zealous to know and serve the one who created them and redeemed them.
Pray for the Yadav community to have good schools available for their children, and for good employment opportunities.
"And those who lead many to righteousness [will shine] like the stars for ever and ever." Daniel 12:3
