Makhmi in India
pronounced: MOCK-mee

The Makhmi people live in the northern part of Jammu and Kashmir. Some live on the Indian side of the border, but most are on Pakistan’s side of the line. This is a very difficult part of the world where armies of both countries are usually on the brink of war.

Ministry Obstacles: The Makhmi people live in the high mountains of Kashmir where outside ideas are seldom brought in and almost never accepted. It will take a work of the Holy Spirit to penetrate their hearts for Christ.

Outreach Ideas: When things are peaceful, Kashmir is a popular tourist destination for South Asians who want to escape the oppressive heat. Believers can come to this area taking global recordings and the JESUS Film if there is peace.

Scripture Focus: "No one is holy like the Lord! There is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God." 1 Sam 2:2

Scripture Prayer: Pray for influential members of this people group to understand that there is no solid rock like our God!

Prayer Focus: Pray for the Makhmi community to be blessed in every way by Almighty God. Pray that there will soon be an unstoppable movement to Christ in their community. Pray for Makhmi decision-makers to have a Holy Spirit-led hunger for spiritual truth that only Jesus Christ can satisfy. Pray for workers to take Christ to the Makhmi people no matter what the cost may be.
