The Bhatra or Bhattra are a scheduled caste in India, which means that they do not have high status. They live in Bastai, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Odisha. They speak Bhattri.
They fish, do cultivation work, and collect mushrooms and forest food. Some of them work as day laborers. The Bhatra have traditional councils to judge in matters. Only a few of them can read and write so the gospel will need to be given in oral form. They prefer marriages between cousins.
They are Hindus.
The Bhatra people need the chance to enjoy the blessings of peace, hope and joy offered by Jesus Christ to those whom are willing to accept Him on His terms.
* Pray that the traditional council leaders of the Bhatra will come to Jesus Christ and open the doors to a movement to Christ that will bless their entire community. * Pray that gospel recordings and the JESUS Film will lead the Bhatra to salvation.
