Introduction

The Eluthassan people live in Kerala, one of India's most Christianized states. They speak Malayalam, Kerala's language. They remain unreached, despite the fact that a high percentage of their neighbors follow the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.


Ministry Obstacles

The Eluthassan people identify with being Hindus. There are also enough false believers in their area to give them reason to distrust those who call themselves Christian.


Outreach Ideas

It will take Malayalam speakers with a heart for their Hindu neighbors to make sure they have the chance to experience life to the full, as Jesus offered.


Prayer Focus

Pray for spiritual openness among the Eluthassan people of India.
Pray that there would be a Disciple Making Movement among the Eluthassan people this decade.
Pray for physical and spiritual blessings for the Eluthassan people.
Pray for the Lord to provide dreams and visions to Eluthassan elders that will draw them to Jesus Christ.
Pray for the Lord to move on Eluthassan hearts to open the doors of their communities to those who believe in Christ.
