In the past, the Daroga used to serve Rajput rulers and chiefs as domestic servants. They are widely distributed in Rajasthan, but they hide their identity and claim to be Rajput. At present, they are variously engaged in cultivation, business or government service. In addition to their ancestral gods, the Daroga worship Radha Krishna, Ska Ram, Hanuman, Bheruji, Mansa, Jagdamba, Kalka and Chandika (Chamunda). There are teachers, businessmen, defense personnel and white-collar employees in the community. The Daroga send their children to school and college.

Ministry Obstacles

Lack of prayer to prepare the Daroga people to understand the Gospel of Christ when it comes to them is likely to result in little fruit.

Outreach Ideas

The primary language of the Daroga is Hindi, and there are many resources available in the Hindi language. Workers are needed to carry such resources as Gospel recordings and the Jesus film to this community.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There may be no believers in Christ at present among the Daroga people. But pray for those who will soon believe in Christ, that the Lord will even now be preparing pastors and teachers to help them.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Daroga community will increasingly be made aware of who Jesus truly is, and will be drawn to him. Pray for evangelists.
