Halwakki Wakkal in India
pronounced: HUL-wah-kee WA-kahl

The name Halwakki refers to milk and rice. Not surprisingly, animal husbandry (for milk) and horticulture (for rice) are their main occupations. They use both traditional and modern medicines in their communities, and the people are allowed to marry cousins. Their language is Kannada, and most of the Halwakki Wakkal people live in Karnataka, which is a southwestern state on the coast of the Arabian Sea.

Ministry Obstacles: The Halwakki Wakkal people practice Hinduism. Religious systems often stand in the way of seeking and finding the true Lord of lords.

Outreach Ideas: Pray that the young people will come across gospel materials and internet resources that will lead them to the Lord. The complete Bible is available in their language, Kannada.

Scripture Focus: "The one thing I ask of the Lord—the thing I seek most—is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord’s perfections and meditating in his Temple." Psalm 27:4

Scripture Prayer: Pray for eternal salvation to many from today’s people group.

Prayer Focus: May the Lord give Halwakki Wakkal communities a hunger for the truth and hearts that are open to Him. Pray that while taking care of their animals and crops, the people may become grateful to the One who provides for them and their animals.
