Introduction / History

The Bhuiya, a Scheduled Caste.


What Are Their Lives Like?

They are mainly landless, but a few possess cultivable land. Mosts depend on daily-wage labor, rickshaw-pulling, brick-laying, etc. Their literacy rate has been low in the past, but probably has improved in recent years. The Bhuiya community speaks well over 30 languages.


What Are Their Beliefs?

They are Hindu. Their pantheon includes a large number of deities, such as Dihwal, Gorraiyya and Bir Bhairon.


What Are Their Needs?

Evangelistic and church planting outreaches need to accommodate the linguistic subdivisions within the community. A low literacy rate requires taking the gospel to these people primarily in oral form, using stories from Scripture, as well as gospel recordings and films, and other visual/oral means.


Prayer Points

Pray they will make schooling a high priority. Pray for the handful of Christians among the Bhuiya community, that they will desire to grow in Christ, to become disciples, not merely Christians in name only. Pray they will put on the full armor of God, including the shield of faith. Pray for spiritual discernment and hunger. They need to want to find the only Savior!
