Introduction / History

The Goudo are a Scheduled Tribe who live in Andhra Pradesh near Orissa. They speak Oriya. They are not vegetarians and eat rice as a cereal.

Women help with agriculture and housework. The Goudu work in selling and some have other trades such as tailoring. They have a council to look after them. Many of them are semi nomads and raise cattle also.

The Goudo have a low literacy level, so the gospel will need to be given in oral form rather than with written materials. They use traditional and modern medicines.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Goudu in India.

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