Sargara of India

The Sargara are a landless community. Their traditional and present-day occupation is splitting and selling wood. Those who breach community norms are fined and ostracized. They profess Hinduism, and Chammunda and Ambajee are their family deities. Their regional deities are Hanumanjee, Shankar, Mahakali and Ramdevjee. The Sargara traditionally do not take food and water from the lower scheduled castes, and food and water from the Sargara are not accepted by the upper castes.

Ministry Obstacles

To follow Jesus is to breach community norms, bringing significant ostracism.

Outreach Ideas

Christians need to help the Sargara people with physical and material needs, as well as telling them of Jesus.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There likely isn't a single follower of Jesus among the Sargara community today, but pray for those the Lord will soon lead to himself. Pray they will fully grasp the significance of Jesus' sacrificial death, and will trust him fully for both forgiveness of sin and power to live life. Pray they will have power to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Sargara community will not find satisfaction in the worship of created things, but will be given a hunger to worship the Creator.
