Introduction

The city of Rawalakot, the capital of the Sudhan tribe, suffered significant damage from the 2005 Kashmir earthquake. Sudhuns are a tightly knit community, and female education is highly valued. Wahabi influence has recently been noted among the Sudhans.

Ministry Obstacles

Pakistan is generally hostile to Christian witness, made worse by Wahabi influence.

Outreach Ideas

Focused, sustained prayer is needed to prepare the hearts of the Sudhan community to receive the Gospel of Christ when it comes. Spiritual matters are spiritually understood.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There likely are no followers of Christ among the Sudhan community. But please pray for those that the Lord will soon call to himself, that they will clearly understand the grace and truth offered through faith in Christ, resting fully on his finished work on the cross, and the power of His life within them.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for the proud Sudhan community to clearly see their need for a Savior, and recognize Jesus as the provision God has provided.
