Banjara, Hindu in India

The Banjara are the largest gypsy group in India and are known as the root gypsies of the earth. Gypsies began traveling from India to different regions of Europe hundreds of years ago. Although we usually associate the word "gypsy" with bands of fortune tellers traveling in colorful caravans from place to place, this is no longer the case with the Banjara. Most have settled down to farming and raising cattle or grain. However, there are still some who beg, sing and wear special make-up while begging in the name of a specific deity. The Banjara love music, playing folk instruments and dancing. Some Banjar are acrobats, magicians, tricksters, story-tellers, and fortune-tellers. Banjara families are closely knit, having minimal relationships with other castes.

Ministry Obstacles

Gypsies have a history of moving frequently, making it difficult for children to obtain a good education. The literacy rate is probably quite low among the Banjara.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for the growing body of Christians among the Banjara to become mature enough in the faith to take the Gospel to the remainder of their community. They need disciplers to help with this.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

The Lord is at work among the Banjara community, and there is a growing body of Christian believers among them. Please pray these believers will grow deeply in understanding and application of God's Word, and will have a heart to share what they are learning with family and friends.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Please pray this traditionally gypsy community will completely leave their former lifestyle of being somewhat dishonest and immoral. Pray they will lose all interest in deeds of darkness.

Scripture Focus

"Now go out to the street corners and invite everyone you see." Matthew 22:9
