Aguri in India

Aguri in India

The Aguri are a cultivating and trading caste. They are mostly located in West Bengal and concentrated in Anguna. The main language of the Aguri is Bengali. They have two castes. The upper caste consists of agricultural land owners and lower caste members who work on farms as laborers and cowherders.

Ministry Obstacles

The Aguri only know about Hinduism. They believe that by performing rituals and good works, they will attain freedom from the endless cycle of birth, death and rebirth.

Outreach Ideas

Their basic needs are education, medical facilities and water wells. Medical facilities can be 30 to 40 kilometers away along dusty or muddy roads. The Aguri also have a spiritual hunger for knowing the truth. By meeting some of these needs, missionaries can build relationships with the people.

Scripture Focus

"By day the LORD commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life."  Psalm 42:8

Scripture Prayer

Pray for many from this people group to find the Lord’s unfailing love and respond with praise and worship.

Prayer Focus

Through screenings of the JESUS Film, hundreds have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior. Pray for disciples for these believers and access to God's Word. Pray for improved schools, roads, water and medicine for the Aguri. Pray for good harvests for farmers so that they can provide for their families and see the provision of Jehovah Jireh. Pray that believers would reach out and begin a disciple making movement.
