Introduction

The Jhalo Malo people are mostly employed in activities related to fishing. Many supervise fish trade while some are employed in fisheries and fishing cooperative societies. Some are self-employed, while others are in salaried jobs. Rural development programs have helped them secure loans for fishing. Their literacy rate is low. They have established a caste association for the all-round development of their community. Their family deities are Lakshmi, Bipadtarini, and Itu.


Ministry Obstacles

There are no known Christian believers in this community. Christian workers will likely have no initial contacts of this nature.


Outreach Ideas

Much sustained and focused prayer is needed as workers prepare. Many good resources are available in the Bengali language, the primary language of this community.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

Although there are no known Christians in this group (in either Bangladesh or India), please pray for the ones the Lord will soon call to himself. Pray they will know the hope to which they have been called, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for a substantial improvement in the literacy rate, especially for the young people in the community. Pray for opportunities to attend good schools.
