The Rajputs

Introduction

The Sial Rajput people have been cattle herders in Pakistan's Punjab Province for a long time. No one knows when they migrated to Punjab. Centuries ago a strong Sial leader unified this part of Pakistan under his rule, but that dynasty didn't last long. Other people groups rose to power, and the Sial slipped back into obscurity.


Ministry Obstacles

Pakistan is one of the world's hardest places to spread the gospel, especially in light of the violence dealt to religious minorities.


Outreach Ideas

Most of these people speak a major language in Pakistan like Panjabi or Urdu, so they have potential access to biblical materials online like gospel recordings and the JESUS Film. Pray for many Sial Rajputs to find, download, and believe what they hear in these resources.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are no known followers of Christ among the Sial Rajputs in Pakistan, with 100 percent of them being Sunni Muslims.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray that God would lead Chrsitian workers to reach out to the Sial Rajputs. Ask the Lord to create a hunger for the true God among this people group. May the Sial come to see Jesus Christ as the true source of salvation.
