Introduction / History

The Sansi people of Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana and Delhi speak Sansiboli. They can be nomadic and were classed as a criminal tribe due to their past. That stigma is with them today making life difficult for them. They can be shunned by others and live in seclusion.

Many of the Sansi live in poverty. Some pull rickshaws. Some of their children work in shops to help poor families. They have a caste council to look after them and to settle disputes among them.

Some of the Sansi are farmers and laborers while others sell alcoholic drinks. Many of them have a low literacy level and so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too. They are a scheduled caste and Hinduism is their religion.

The Sansi live in other parts of India too such as Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir and Chandigarh.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Sansi (Hindu traditions) in India.

* Pray that Indian Christians will help lead the Sansi to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that the poverty they live in will cause them to look to Jesus Christ for salvation.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
