Lunia (Hindu traditions) in India
pronounced: loo-nee-AH

The name Lunia comes from Lun or Nun meaning "moist," and is the name for sea salt. Hindu society classes Lunia people as Shudras, the lowest of the four caste blocks. They live in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and a small number are in West Bengal. They are 100 percent Hindus. They also worship their ancestors.

Ministry Obstacles: Lunia people need to understand that the gods they worship cannot give them eternal life, nor can they correct their sin problems. Bible resources exist in their Hindi language, but they remain unreached.

Outreach Ideas: Simple things grow/simple things multiply. Small groups could be started to maximize fruitfulness, such those described in Acts 2:41-47.

Scripture Focus: "I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done." Ps 9:1

Scripture Prayer: Pray for many from today’s people group to tell of God’s marvelous deeds to their families.

Prayer Focus: There are no known believers among the Lunia people at this time. Pray for disciples reproducing disciples, churches planting churches, movements reproducing movements.
