Introduction / History

The Nadia people are sweepers who live in Gujarat, India's westernmost state. Today only a few are continuing their traditional occupation of making leather strips to tie a bullock to a plow. The Nadias are also wage laborers, and some are engaged in private or government service. Most have some cultivable land to grow grain crops, which are staples in their diet. Nadia communities try to make sure that their children get an education so they can have a good future. They limit their family size, and take advantage of opportunities to get modern medicine and loans.

Though the Nadia people are concerned with being economically prepared, they have failed to make provision for their eternal destiny. They are completely submerged in Hinduism, a least reached people group with few, if any, known believers.


Prayer Points

* Pray that the Nadias and their subgroups will develop a hunger and thirst for more than material needs.
* Pray that they will obtain copies of the Jesus Film and the Bible, both of which are in Gujarati, a language they speak.
* Pray that the Holy Spirit will bring the Nadias into a ground swell movement where they will experience the joy of worshiping the one true God.
