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