Introduction

The Dusadh are economically backward. Sometimes they earn their livelihood by searching for insects in the cattle of peasants. Their primary vocation is seeking alms while singing Kapila Mangal and Sitala Mangal songs. The local peasants hesitate to employ them in agricultural work because they do not have the skill to do such work. They worship Garaya, Baghat, Garam Gossain, Kudra, Barpahar, Manasa, Satbahni, Shiva, Durga, Lakshmi, Sitala and other deities.


Ministry Obstacles

Christian workers need to note the extreme poverty of the Dosadh community, and not neglect their material and physical needs.


Outreach Ideas

Christians need to serve these people by helping improve their living conditions. Friendships based upon trust are needed.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for the Christian believers that will someday emerge among the Dosadh community, that they will be zealous to know and serve the Lord.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for these poor people, the Dosadh community. Pray they will have good schools available for their children and desire to send their children to school. Pray for an improved standard of living.
