ah-sar-EE vish-vah-KAR-mah

Do you ever need a handyman? The Viswakarma Asari peoples have subgroups that are stonemasons, blacksmiths, workers with other metals like gold or bronze, and those who make jewelry. They are a relatively new caste. The caste system has some flexibility, in that new castes can be created, and others can be discontinued or combined with others. According to their traditional belief, they are descendants of Vishvarkarman, a Hindu deity.

Ministry Obstacles
This group of people is dedicated to the Hindu religious system.

Outreach Ideas
The Viswakarma Asari people live in states like Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry, and Karnataka where there is a church, and there are even local evangelists who can reach out to their Hindu neighbors.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray that the believers among the Viswakarma Asari people will be loving and bold as they share the blessings of Jesus Christ with their Hindu neighbors. Pray that they will walk in the fruit of the Holy Spirit, never giving way to discouragement or doubt.

Pray for the entire people group
* Pray for the Holy Spirit to give the Viswakarma Asari people a hunger and thirst for righteousness that will lead them to Jesus. * Pray for Viswakarma Asari family leaders to be blessed by Jesus and recognize that their entire extended families need Him as well. * Pray for a church planting movement to spread far and wide among the Viswakarma Asari people.
