Abdul in India

The Abdul (or Dafali) are widely distributed in northern India. In Gujarat, the Abdal collect alms in the name of god by beating a one-ended drum (danka) and singing religious songs. Their subsistence is largely derived from seeking alms. In other states the Abdul have other occupations, such as fitting horseshoes and making horse and cow whips with leather. In Himachal Pradesh they traditionally were singers for the Rajput, and used to lead funeral processions playing on a stringed musical instrument and singing mourning songs. They have an effective and organized social council known as the panchayat, which is headed by a sardar, to maintain social order in the community. They have a very low rate of literacy, especially among females. They are Sunni Muslim.

Ministry Obstacles

This community is widely dispersed, making it difficult to contact very many of them.

Outreach Ideas

The Gospel needs to come primarily in oral form to this community. Workers are needed who can tell stories from scripture, and who will bring recorded scripture with them to the people.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

None of the Abdul has identified themselves as Christians to the Indian census. Pray this situation will soon change.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray this poor community will be able to educate their children well. They very much need to raise their literacy rate, and they need to gain skills to become employable.

Scripture Focus

"And those who lead many to righteousness [will shine] like the stars for ever and ever." Daniel 12:3

Abdul in India

La Abdul (o Dafali) están ampliamente distribuidos en el norte de la India. En Gujarat, el Abdal recogen limosnas en nombre de dios al golpear a un tambor de una sola terminación (danka) mientras cantan canciones religiosas. Su subsistencia se deriva en gran parte de la búsqueda de limosnas. En otros estados el Abdul tiene otras ocupaciones, como el ajuste de las herraduras y hacer látigos caballo y la vaca con cuero. En Himachal Pradesh que tradicionalmente eran cantantes para el Rajput, y se utilizan para guiar las procesiones funerarias jugar en un instrumento musical de cuerda y cantando canciones de duelo. Tienen un consejo social eficaz y organizada conocida como el panchayat, que está dirigida por un sardar, para mantener el orden social en la comunidad. Tienen una muy baja tasa de alfabetización, especialmente entre las mujeres. Ellos son musulmanes suníes.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

Esta comunidad es muy dispersa, lo que dificulta el contacto con muchos de ellos.

Ideas para el Ministerio

El Evangelio debe de llegar principalmente en forma oral a esta comunidad. Se necesitan trabajadores que puedan contar historias de las Escrituras, y que traigan la escrituras grabadas con ellos a la gente.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Ninguno de los Abdul ha identificado a sí mismos como cristianos en el censo de la India. Ore para que esta situación pueda cambiar pronto.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore para que esta pobre comunidad sea capaz de educar bien a sus hijos. Ellos tienen mucha necesidad de elevar su tasa de alfabetización, y necesitan adquirir habilidades para convertirse en empleables.

Texto Bíblico

"Los entendidos resplandecerán como el resplandor del firmamento; y los que enseñan la justicia a la multitud, como las estrellas a perpetua eternidad." Daniel 12:3

Abdul in 인도

Abdul (Dafali) 사람들은 북부 인도에 널리 분포하고 있습니다. 구자라트주에서는 Abdul 사람들이 한쪽이 막힌 북(danka)을 치며 종교적인 노래를 부르면서 자선금을 모으곤 합니다. 이들은 거의 자선금을 모으는 것으로만 겨우 먹고 삽니다. 인도의 다른 주에서 Abdul 사람들은 말굽의 편자를 맞추거나 말과 소에게 쓸 가죽채찍을 만드는 등의 직업이 있습니다. 히마찰 프라데쉬주에서 이들은 Rajput 들을 위해 노래를 부르는 것이 전통이었으며, 장의 행렬을 이끌면서 현악기를 연주하고 애도하는 노래를 부르곤 했습니다. 이들 안에 구성되어 있는 사회적 의회는 panchayat 이라고 불리며 sardar 가 그 수장으로서, 지역사회의 질서를 유지하는 의회입니다. 이들의 문자해독율은 매우 낮으며, 특히 여성들이 심합니다. 이들은 수니파 무슬림입니다.

선교 장애 요인

이 종족사회는 매우 넓게 퍼져있어서 이들중 많은 이들을 접촉하기는 힘듭니다.

전도 방법 제안

이 사람들에게는 복음이 구전 형식으로 전해져야 할 필요가 있습니다. 성경 이야기를 말해줄 수 있는 사역자들이 필요하고, 녹음된 성경을 이들에게 전달할 이들이 필요합니다.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

Abdul 사람들 중 그 어느 누구도 인도의 인구조사에서 기독교인이라고 밝히지 않았습니다. 이런 상황이 곧 바뀌도록 기도해 주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

이 가난한 사회가 자기 자녀들을 잘 가르치게 되도록 기도해 주십시오. 이들의 문자해독율을 증진시킬 수 있도록, 고용에 필요한 기술을 습득할 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오.

성경 말씀

지혜 있는 자는 궁창의 빛과 같이 빛날 것이요 많은 사람을 옳은데로 돌아오게 한 자는 별과 같이 영원토록 비취리라 다니엘 12:3
