Balti in India


Balti in India

Do you like bulgur (cracked wheat) and apricots? So do the Balti people who farm these crops. Balti people are a scheduled tribe living in perilous mountains near the Pakistan border. Their seven isolated villages are inhabited mainly by the elderly, women, and children. Most young men go to the cities for education and employment. Today their girls have the opportunity to become educated in local schools.

Ministry Obstacles

Perilous mountains and weather contribute to difficult access to Balti villages. Balti ancestors were Buddhist. They converted to Islam in the 10th century. Today they worship an assortment of gods, all of whom turn them away from the only Savior.

Outreach Ideas

Balti people are hospitable and willing to spend time with outsiders. Perhaps this is an opening for Christ's ambassadors. They have many practical needs that could open doors for the gospel.

Scripture Focus

"So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom."  Psalm 90:12

Scripture Prayer

Pray that this knowledge will lead many from today’s people group to seek the Savior.

Prayer Focus

Pray that Christ followers would produce radio programs that would point the way to the Lord Jesus. Pray that a movement of the Holy Spirit would sweep through all seven Balti villages from one family to another.
