Introduction / History

The Lonar live in Maharashtra. They speak Marathi, Kannada and Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. They are not vegetarians who eat rice as a cereal. Hinduism is their religion.

What Are Their Lives Like?

The Lonar people work mostly as laborers in the limekilns. Women work there as well. Children often support their families. They allow divorce if approved by the council. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property.

What Are Their Beliefs?

The Lonar people need to experience the abundant life only offered by Jesus Christ.

Prayer Points

Pray that God gives them dreams and visions, leading them to Jesus Christ. Pray that the council leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
