Introduction / History

The Gandalla live in Andhra Pradesh. They speak, read and write in Telugu. Hinduism is their religion. They are not vegetarians who eat rice. Selling household and decorative items is their main work.

The Gandalla have cross-cousin marriages. Divorce and marrying again are allowed. There are marriage rituals. The dead are buried. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home.

The Gandalla who live in towns and cities tend to be in business. They have a council to look after them. Their literacy level is low, so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too.


Prayer Points

* Pray that the council leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
