The Meda are a Scheduled Tribe of Karnataka. That simply means that they have the status of a tribe, which is usually low in Hindu society. They have two groups, one who that speaks Kodagu and the other that speaks Kannada. They read and write in Kannada.
The main work they do is basket making and cultivation. The Meda have streams and wells for their water supply. They have a council of elders to settle disagreements among them.
Hinduism is their religion. They have their own festivals.
The Meda people need the abundant life that only Jesus offers.
Pray that the council of elders come to Jesus Christ and lead their people into a movement to Christ. Pray that gospel materials and the internet to become easily accessible for them. Pray for a spiritual hunger that will lead them to the only Savior. Pray for workers.
