Introduction

"A community which derives its name from the Sanskrit word talika or taila, used for the oil extracted from sesame and mustard, thus alluding to their traditional occupation... Mythological origin of the Teli is traced to Lord Shiva who created them to destroy five demons. However, their legend also says that the first Teli was created by Shiva to rub him with oil." (Singh, K. S., India's Communities, p. 3462)


Ministry Obstacles

The Teli may have little concept of a loving creator God who has made provision for the forgiveness of sin and for an abundant life.


Outreach Ideas

Several teams of workers will be needed for this large community that speaks many languages. Pray for workers.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are a few followers of Christ among the Teli community, pray they will hunger to learn of Christ, and follow him wholeheartedly.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Teli community will be able to properly provide for their families, and will have good schools available for their children. Pray for their material well-being as well as for their spiritual needs.
