Mussali in Afghanistan

Mussali in Afghanistan

Indigenous Hindus were forcibly converted to Islam and given the derisive name "Mussali." Today they have low status wherever they live in South Asia, including Afghanistan. There is a small number of Mussalis in Afghanistan. The majority of them live in Pakistan's Punjab Province, and India's state of Rajasthan. The Mussali people are looked down upon by other communities. They are unhappy with their lot and they want more out of life.

Ministry Obstacles

Afghanistan is a very closed nation. People cannot go there on a missionary visa. People are also suspicious of anyone from a "Christian" nation. Muslim people are taught that Christianity is founded on a holy book that has been corrupted by bad translation efforts.

Outreach Ideas

It might be possible for someone to go to the Mussali people with skills that would give the Afghan government reason to allow them in the country: medical or teaching skills for example.

Scripture Focus

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."  Acts 1:8

Scripture Prayer

Pray that today’s people group would receive God’s Spirit and become empowered to tell others about the grace of God in Jesus Christ.

Prayer Focus

There are no followers of Christ among the Mussali people, so pray for this to soon change. Pray that the Mussali people would have the blessings of spiritual hunger that will lead them to Jesus Christ. Pray for the Lord to thrust out workers to this untended field. Pray for the Lord to raise up the Mussali communities with both physical and spiritual blessings that will show other communities what He can do for any people who submit to His ways.
