Introduction

The Gaderia have virtually abandoned their traditional occupation of rearing sheep and goats. They are now mainly engaged as laborers in masonry work, while some are involved in animal husbandry. The Brahman are engaged for performing at birth, marriage and death rites and for imparting religious teachings. The Gaderia accept and exchange water and food with all other local communities except the Chura, Chamar and Deha.


Ministry Obstacles

Low literacy rates can be an obstacle to the Gospel, but not necessarily. If oral means of communication are effectively used, individuals can readily understand.


Outreach Ideas

Christian workers need to carry the message of Christ to the Gadaria community using stories from Scripture, as well as Gospel recordings and films.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There may be no followers of Jesus among the Hindu Gadaria at the present time, but pray for those the Lord will soon bring to himself. Pray He is preparing teachers and pastors for them, and will also provide Scriptures and other study materials for them. Pray they will have teachable hearts.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for the Hindu Gadaria community to be able to care well for their families. Pray also for the widow and orphans among them, that they will be well cared for.
