Introduction

According to the mythology of the Bhandai, they were in charge of the treasures of Lord Indra during Saryug and left for Sindh during the battle between the aryas or devas (gods) and rakshasas (demons). Widow remarriage is allowed. Bhandari women play a vital role in social, religious, spiritual, and economic pursuits. Amba Mata is their caste deity, Gotrej their kul deity, and Holi Mata and Lakshmi Mata are their village deities.


Ministry Obstacles

The Bhandari are a tiny caste in Bangladesh, and may be difficult to even find. There are no known believers.


Outreach Ideas

Focused prayer and sustained effort will be needed to reach this community with the Gospel. They probably won't be reached without intentional effort.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are no known believers today, but pray for those the Lord will draw to himself. They will need prayer support.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Please pray this tiny group in Bangladesh will be taught by God's Spirit they need forgiveness for their sin. Pray He will then teach them about Christ.
