The Megh (or Meghwal) are a Scheduled Caste whose primary occupation is farming. They worship Ram Devji and Bankar Mataji as the chief god and goddess of the community. Nowadays, the caste prejudice against them has died down to a large extent except in some remote areas. They have achieved moderate progress in education and their literacy rate has been improving.
The New Testament, Jesus film, and other tools are available. Workers are needed to take the Gospel message to this community.
Pray the Lord will give Megh families understanding and responsive hearts as they hear about the love of Christ.
There may be no current believers among the Hindu Megh, but pray for those who will be soon be found. Pray they will accurately understand the message of the Gospel of Christ, and be able to teach it accurately to others in their community.
Pray for an improvement in living conditions for this low caste community, for educational opportunities for the children, and employment opportunities for the adults.
