The Dehwar people are a Baloch tribe from Pakistan's westernmost Baloch Province. Their name comes from "Dehs" referring to mud houses inhabited by those the Dehwar people once ruled.
They live in Balochistan, though some live in Iran.
In today's world there are Dehwar people from many walks of life. Dehwar people can be optometrists, cricket players, or anything else.
The Dehwar people are almost all Muslims. They believe that their salvation is based on their obedience to the teachings of the Qur 'an, not on the death of Jesus Christ. Most Muslims identify with their religion in a way that closes their minds to other spiritual ideas.
The Dehwar people need to hear that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, and there is no other. There is nothing we can do to save ourselves.
Pray for a person of peace to arise from within the Dehwar community who will welcome Christ's ambassadors.
Pray for a movement to Christ among the Dehwar people of Pakistan.
Pray that Dehwar people will open their hearts to Jesus Christ.
Pray for bold individuals to go them, despite the possibility of persecution.
