Introduction / History

The Hadis are a low-class sweeper community. They have always held this low status position. They live all throughout eastern India.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Hadi people have few options for jobs. Not many can get an adequate education to get beyond menial work.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Hadi people practice Hinduism, the ancient religion of India. Hinduism is a catch-all phrase for the local religions of South Asia, so it is very diverse. At the popular level, Hindus worship and serve the gods of the Hindu pantheon. They do not have a personal or familial relationship with their gods like Christians or Jews.
Almost all Hindus participate in yearly celebrations like Holi, the festival of colors and the start of spring / Diwali, the festival of lights / Navratri, the celebration of autumn / and Rama Navami, Rama's birthday.


What Are Their Needs?

The Hadi people need to put their hope in the King of kings, realizing that he is the one who gives them worth and dignity. They usually do not have good medical care.


Prayer Points

Pray for better medical care for the Hadi people in Nepal.
Pray that Nepali believers will demonstrate that following Christ is not a foreign religion but an international faith.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to thrust out loving workers to the Hadi people in Nepal.
