Introduction / History

The name Audhelia comes from the word "adheheria" meaning those who did not come along a straight line. They believe that their ancestors migrated from Uttar Pradesh, one of India's northcentral states. Today they live in Madhya Pradesh, a state in central India.

These people were traditionally pig herders, though they eventually made a community decision to no longer do that kind of work. They gained a taste for pork during their herding years, though their staple food is the usual rice. Many also consume alcoholic beverages and smoke. In today's world, the Audhelia are usually farm laborers.

They worship Hindu gods, especially Devi, who is worshipped by a different name by different Audhelia clans. Most believe that diseases are caused by incurring the wrath of a goddess.

Pray that they will be freed from spiritual bondage to worship only Jesus Christ, the giver of life.
