Their attitude towards education, medical and family welfare programs is favorable. Their family deity is Ashapridebi. Village level and regional level deities are Bherujee and Matajee.

Ministry Obstacles

Outreach Ideas

Stories from Scripture, combined with Gospel films and recordings, can be used effectively.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for the followers of Christ that will someday emerge from the Rawat community, that the Lord will provide qualified pastors and teachers for them, and that they will be well established in the faith.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for the Rawat community to increasingly be aware of their need for forgiveness of sin, and that the creator God loves them.
