Introduction / History

"Get out! We do not want you or your pigs in this village!" Jegan stuttered, "This has been my family's home for generations. I do not intend to leave…." "Leave NOW! And take your ugly-faced pigs and their diseases with you! By this time, a crowd was gathering, some with sticks and rocks. Standing behind the belligerent old man, they glared at Jegan. The Jogi pig herder began to collect his pigs before departing the place of his birth. He sighed and took one look back as the mob dispersed.
Already living in abject poverty, the Handi Jogi pig herders face more than just financial hardship. Other people groups who view them as human garbage discriminate against them. Their occupation-pig rearing-is considered not only shameful, but a source of disease. Their status is about as low as it gets in a Hindu society.

The government of Sri Lanka does not even recognize the existence of the Handi Jogi. Imagine how worthless the members of this unreached people group must feel!

The Bible says that God views the Handi Jogi quite differently. It says He created all mankind and gave them their uniqueness. God has a purpose for this people group in His kingdom.


Prayer Points

Pray for the Handi Jogi to hear how valuable they are to the Creator of all things. Pray for them to learn that God sent His only Son so they could have eternal life and with a purpose.
