The legend about the origin of the community is that one day a man was going to kill a number of cows. Parashuram was at that time practicing austerities in the jungle. Hearing the cries of the sacred animals he rushed to their assistance, but the cow killer was aided by his friends. So Parashuram made five men out of kusha grass and brought them to life by letting drops of his perspiration fall upon them. Hence arose the name Pasi, from the Hindi pasina (sweat).

Ministry Obstacles

This community speaks a number of languages. Separate church planting projects may be needed for each language group.


Outreach Ideas

Stories from Scripture, films, recordings, and Gospel radio for each language spoken by the Pasi community will be helpful.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for the followers of Christ that will soon emerge from the Pasi community, that the Lord will provide pastors and teachers for them, and for them to become well grounded in the faith, fully trusting in Christ.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Pasi community will increasingly be aware of their need to know and follow the creator God.
