Gond of India

Viewing 8/11/2017

Gond of India

Though Gonds are listed as tribals today, they consider themselves as a higher race. They were the native rulers once. They believe that evil spirits are the causes of sicknesses. Sacrifices are believed to be powerful to keep away these evil spirits. A sacrifice will be followed by a social dinner. The sacrificial goat has to give permission for the sacrifice by nodding its head! The people will wait till the animal nods its head.

Ministry Obstacles

More workers are needed to carry the Gospel to the Gond.

Outreach Ideas

Pray the believers among the Gond community will grow in numbers and in maturity such that they can take the Gospel effectively to all of their community. The sacrificial goat is a symbol of Christ's sacrificial death, a redemptive analogy.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the Christian believers among the Gond, that they will live righteous lives, growing in the fullness of the Lord's Spirit, being a faithful testimony to his goodness.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Gond will provide good schooling for their children, and be able to provide adequately for their families.
