Unreached of Day: Today

Ganda in India


Ganda in India

The Ganda of India are a Dalit people, the lowest caste. Unlike some Dalits, however, the Ganda are mostly closed to the gospel. They are farmers who marry young and live in various parts of India including Chhattisgarh State. They speak Odia and Hindi, two of India's major languages.

Ministry Obstacles

Ministry obstacles include the stigma of caste status, lack of education, devotion to Hindu gods, and little Christian witness.

Outreach Ideas

The Bible and media tools are available in Odia and Hindi. Outreach ideas include Jesus comic book distribution, showing the JESUS Film, one-on-one evangelism with the Evangecube, and the wordless book. Believers can also take the gospel to them through skits, stories, and songs.

Scripture Focus

"You have tested us, O God; you have purified us like silver."  Psalm 66:10

Scripture Prayer

Pray for the Lord to test and purify today’s people group.

Prayer Focus

Pray for faithfulness and witness of the few Ganda believers. Pray that they will remain strong in their faith, thereby attracting inquiries concerning the Savior. Pray that the Ganda will become open to the gospel and will access Christian literature and media, leading to a movement to Christ. Pray for the Lord to bless the Ganda people economically and spiritually this decade.
