Aguri in India
pronounced: uh-GUR-ee

From the villages, the Aguri people are often moving to cities like Kolkotta, or even New York! Traditionally they have been largely an agricultural group, divided into two sub-castes, the lower of which are cow herders. As Kshatriyas, they are not high caste, but they have favorable status.

Ministry Obstacles: Attacks by Hindi radicals on Christ followers in India have increased since the change of the ruling party in 2014. This makes it extremely difficult and dangerous for believers to reach communities without a gospel witness like the Aguri.

Outreach Ideas: The Aguri have access to the JESUS Film, so pray that those who watch it will share with their villages and larger communities and this will lead to Discovery Bible Studies.

Scripture Focus: "And when all the people saw it, they fell face down on the ground and cried out, “The Lord—he is God! Yes, the Lord is God!”" 1 Kings 18:39

Scripture Prayer: Pray that today’s people group will understand the vast power and goodness of the Lord.

Prayer Focus: Pray that the Aguri followers of Christ will hold strong in their faith. Generally the Aguri are a very aggressive and hostile group. Pray that the Lord would soften their hearts to treat each other with love and grace. Pray that they would cast their eyes on Jesus and understand that He holds life’s answers. Pray for a movement to Christ among the Aguri people this decade.
