The Saur are a scheduled tribe who live in Madhya Pradesh in India. They speak Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. They are not vegetarians and they eat fish, pork and mutton.
Monogamy is the usual way among the Saur. Divorce is allowed if the community members agree. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. They have birth and marriage rituals and the dead are cremated.
The Saur collect and sell firewood. Some of them work in agriculture. They have a community caste council to look after them and judge in matters. Hinduism is their religion. They have a low literacy level so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too.
* Pray that the Saur councils will come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead the Saur to salvation.
