Sarki of Nepal

Viewing 5/02/2017

Sarki of Nepal

The traditional and primary occupation of the Sarki was shoe-making, but nowadays only a few among them are occupied as leather-workers or cobblers. They have family deities and a village deity. Some of their deities are Santala Devi, Maidevta and Dat Kali. Their witchdoctor is called lama or jhankri.

Ministry Obstacles

The worldview of the Sarki is very different than those of a monotheist, who believes in one God who is creator of all.

Outreach Ideas

The Lord is building his church in the region. His Spirit is active. Pray that Christian workers will include the Sarki community in their outreach.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There are some Christians among the Sarki community. Pray they become more than cultural Christians, instead becoming zealous disciples of Christ, trusting him fully with their lives.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Sarki community will be dissatisfied with worshiping the gods of this age, but rather will hunger to know the creator God and his Son who came to give them life.
