Turi (Hindu traditions) in Bangladesh

The Turi are a Hindu people group who live in Bangladesh and northeast India. Their primary language is Bengali, and most live in the states of Rangpur, Rajshahi and Chittagong. They lead challenging lives. Many other groups of Hindus will not associate with them. The traditional occupation of the Turi involves making useful things from bamboo.

Ministry Obstacles

The Turi are rejected by other Hindu communities. They may be hesitant to trust outsiders.

Outreach Ideas

Many of the Turi cannot read. Evangelists skilled in music can teach gospel concepts through songs and skits. Turi people can learn the songs and learn the ways of Christ and teach them to others.

Scripture Focus

"I will give thanks to you, O LORD, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations."  Psalm 108:3

Scripture Prayer

Pray that God will raise up thankful people from among this people.

Prayer Focus

Pray that believers among them would be elevated in their communities and that the word would be spread to those who need to hear it. Pray the church would grow in a healthy way, led by the power and goodness of the Holy Spirit. Pray the Turi would have good education and healthcare that help improve their communities. Pray that literacy rates would be improved so they can provide for their families.
