Many of the Chasot, or Sadgope Yadavs own land and work in agriculture and small businesses. Education does not usually go beyond secondary level for them. They are concentrated in West Bengal, though many live outside this state.

Ministry Obstacles

Like other Yadav peoples, the Sadgopes have high enough status that it is hard to find those who can reach them without being looked down upon. (Most Indian believers are from low status communities.) Pray for high status community believers to reach them.

Outreach Ideas

There are some believers in Kolkotta, the main city in West Bengal. They can reach the Sadgope Yadavs.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for Sadgope Yadav believers to be thrust out to reach their neighbors in a bold, but loving way. Pray for them to demonstrate the fruit of the Holy Spirit in their lives.

Pray for the Entire People Group

*Pray for a spiritual hunger that will drive the Sadgope Yadavs to the arms of Jesus.
*Pray for workers who are filled with the fruit and the power of the Holy Spirit to go to the Sadgope Yadavs.
*Pray for their hearts to be ready to receive their Savior.
