Introduction

The Badhik traditionally hunted animals and trapped birds and sold them for their livelihood. At present, they are butchers and also engage in various types of agriculture. They offer their services for the ceremonial slaughter of animals. The Badhik place themselves among the Sudra in the varna order. They marry within the community. Being Hindu, they observe most of the Hindu festivals.


Ministry Obstacles

This small, low status caste probably has a low literacy rate, and virtually no access to the Gospel message.


Outreach Ideas

Please pray for workers who can communicate scripture stories orally in the languages spoken by the Badhik people.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

It is quite unlikely that any of the Badhik people know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Please pray the Lord will prepare the hearts of the people for the Gospel, then send Christian workers to them.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Uttar Pradesh, the home state of the Badhik people, is known as the home of Hinduism. Rural areas have few amenities, and the scale of human suffering is immense. Please pray for improved health care facilities throughout the state.
