The traditional occupation of the Pherera is the dying of cloth. They are a small community living in the highly unreached northern state of Himachal Pradesh.
Many are now engaged in tailoring and government service.
Bankhandi Devi is their patron deity. Guga, Balak Nath, Kaleshwar Mahadev, Jawalamukhi, Bajarangbali, Narain and Shiva are some of their village and regional deities.
Many of the Pherera live in Himachal Pradesh, a center for Hindu pilgrimages. There is much devotion to idols in this state. It is unlikely there any Christians within this small community in northern India. However, Revelation 5:9 teaches us there will be followers of Christ one day, and we can begin praying for them.
Please pray the Lord will soon send additional workers to take the good news of Jesus to the castes and tribes of northern India.
Please pray this small people group will not be overlooked by evangelists and church planters.
Pray for spiritual hunger and discernment in the Pherera community.
