Introduction

The Konda Dhora claim that the Bagata, Kotiya and Manne Dora are superior, whereas the Gabada, Poraja and Khond are inferior. Traditionally they accept food and water from the Bagata and Kotiya, but not from the Gadaba, Poraja and Khond. In past years their literacy rate was quite low, but perhaps has improved in recent years. Traditionally, the Konda Dhora practiced settled cultivation, and that remains their primary occupation.

Ministry Obstacles

The Konda Dhora speak a number of languages, as do most communities in India. Separate church planting projects may be needed for each language subdivision of the community.

Outreach Ideas

The low literacy rate suggests oral communication of the Gospel will be needed.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for the several hundred Christians among the Konda Dhora, that they will grow in their devotion to Christ, and will become mature and settled in their faith. Pray they will be patient with each other, bearing with one another in love.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for this Hindu community to increasingly become aware of their need for forgiveness for their sins, and realize this possibility is offered through faith in Christ.
