Introduction

The Baori are described as a nomadic group, and have been associated with criminal activities in the past. This community has three occupational divisions: the Kapadia, who sell old and used garments; the Magnia, who subsist by begging; and the Chatnia, who beg and eat discarded food. According to their perception, the last group is socially inferior to the other two.


Ministry Obstacles

Because of their lifestyle, it may be difficult for Christian workers to make contact with the Baori people, and establish trust.


Outreach Ideas

Christians need to feel genuine compassion and concern for these people, and not be condescending. There may be opportunities to minister to the physical and material needs of the people.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There may be no Christian believers today among the Baori community, but pray the ones that will soon come forth will be properly taught the truths of Scripture. Pray they will learn and practice the ways of Christ.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for these poor people to be able to properly provide for their families. Pray they will make schooling for their children a priority.
