Introduction / History

The Bhuyiar people of Uttar Pradesh are a community of landowners and laborers. Though most of them are engaged in rural work, some are wage laborers and miners. They have been known to do slash and burn agriculture. They usually marry their cousins. They consider themselves to be Sudras. The Bhuyiar people are not that low in the Hindu pecking order; other communities share water sources and cremation sites with them.


What Are Their Needs?

They are 100 percent Hindu. The Bhuyiar people enjoy listening to the radio and attending movies, so Christian radio and the JESUS Film could be good ways to reach them. Because their literacy rate is below 35 percent, print media would not be effective.


Prayer Points

* Pray for Indian believers to take the JESUS Film into Bhuyiar communities.
* Pray for them to hear Christ-honoring radio broadcasts.
* Pray for the Bhuyiar people to embrace the ways of Christ when they hear of His unmatched glory.
