Introduction / History

The Sonr are a scheduled tribe who live in Madhya Pradesh. Hinduism is their religion. They eat wheat and rice as a cereal. They speak Bundelkhandi.

The Sonr have several clans. Marriage is by discussion. They are monogamous. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property.

The Sonr work in cultivation and laboring. They have a community council to look after them. They rely on hospitals that are a distance away from them. Family planning is used by them. Their education level is low so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too.

Prayer Points

* Pray that the community leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that gospel recordings and oral scriptures will lead them to salvation.
