Introduction

The name Gawal (an alternate name for the Gual) is derived from the word gopala, meaning protector of cows. Alhough traditionally the Gual were involved in dairy-farming and cattle-raising, now many have diversified into other occupations. They have their own community councils at the village level. Social boycotts, excommunication, cash fines, etc., are imposed on offenders as punishment for wrongdoing. Folk-songs are sung on ceremonial occasions. The dead are cremated and the ashes immersed in the Ganga River.


Ministry Obstacles

Spiritual darkness is deep in Uttar Pradesh, the main home of the Gual people.


Outreach Ideas

Perhaps the youth of this community will discover the availability of Gospel recordings and Christian videos in the Hindi language on the internet. Pray they will be prompted to listen and view, and be given understanding.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

Please pray for those in this people group who will one day come to be disciples of Jesus Christ. They will need to be fed, spiritually.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Please pray for employment opportunities for the Gual people, and for clean water and adequate medical care.
