Introduction / History

The Mala Sale are a scheduled caste of Andhra Pradesh. They are not vegetarians but do not eat beef and pork. They eat wheat and rice as cereals.

The Mala Sale have cousin marriages. They were weavers but cultivation is now their main work. Most of them are very poor. They have a low literacy level so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too. Hinduism is their religion. They use traditional and modern medicines and family planning too.

The Mala Sale also live in Maharashtra and Karnataka and are scheduled castes there too.


Prayer Points

* Pray that Indian Christians will lead the Mala Sale to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to salvation.
* Pray that they will get away from poverty.
