Gadaria (Muslim traditions) of India

The Gadaria are largely shepherds and blanket-weavers. Women participate in the rearing of cattle and in the processing of wool. Property is divided equally among sons only; succession is by the eldest son. They are mainly engaged as laborers in masonry work, while some are involved in animal husbandry. Their literacy rate is low.

Ministry Obstacles

The low literacy rate suggests the Gospel message can best be communicated through scriptural stories told orally, and by films, radio, and recordings.

Outreach Ideas

Christian believers can build healthy relationships with the Gadaria, helping them with physical needs and introducing them to Christ.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the Christian disciples that will soon emerge from the Gadaria community, that they live holy lives, zealous to know and serve the Lord.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for the Gadaria community to have adequate health care, be able to find honorable employment, and have good schools available for their children.

Scripture Focus

"How then shall they call upon Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?" Romans 10:14-15
