Introduction / History

"Lal Kriya, come quick!" The familiar call caused the slender, sari-clad woman to put her basket weaving aside, gather her kit and respond as midwife to another village birth. She hoped the mother was not so young this time, since child marriage is the way of life in her community. She also hoped that the mother isn't addicted to alcohol as many Basor people are, a situation that often leads to serious problems at birth.

The Basor people live primarily in Uttar Pradesh. The Basor are generally clustered on the outskirts of a city where they can ply their traditional trade of basket making and bamboo working. The women serve as midwives to the villagers. Lal or Ram are joined with the given name to signify they are of the Basor caste.


Prayer Points

* Pray that the hearts of Basor people of Uttar Pradesh will be softened and opened to the gospel.
* Pray that the futility of Hinduism would finally dawn on them and they would see the true path to hope and eternal salvation through Christ.
* Pray that alcoholism would have no power in this community and that the ancient traditions that keep the Basors in bondage would be broken.
* Pray that believers would be called to proclaim the hope of Jesus in this hopeless place.
