Bhoi Kharbind in India

The Bhoi Kharbind or Kharkata are a Hindu people living in east central India. The vast majority reside in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Their main occupations are agricultural work and making items from bamboo and straw like baskets and mats. Many Bhoi Kharbind own land but some work as landless laborers. The two primary languages of the Bhoi Kharbind are Hindi and Bhojpuri.

Ministry Obstacles
There is a lot of pressure to remain in the religious system of one's ancestors. For this reason, it is important that those who go as Christ' ambassadors reach community leaders first.

Outreach Ideas
Bibles, literature and radio programs exist in Hindi. Hindu background believers can share with the Bhoi Kharbind the blessings of having a relationship with God through Christ.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There may be no believers among the Bhoi at the present time. Pray that God brings many into his kingdom in the near future.

Pray for the entire people group
* Pray that the Kharbind leaders will come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him so that their entire community can be blessed by God. * Pray that gospel materials and radio programs in Hindi will lead them to salvation. * Pray for a movement of Bhoi Kharbind households to study the Bible and accept the blessings of Christ.

Scripture Focus
"for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God." 1 Peter 1:23
