Behara in Bangladesh


Behara in Bangladesh

Every people group has a story. When we are gathered around God's throne in heaven, we'll get to hear each and every one of those stories. But for now, the Muslim Behara living in Bangladesh have an unknown story. There is almost no information about this mysterious people group.

Ministry Obstacles

We do know that the Behara live in rural areas and are followers of Islam. Though they are not part of the Hindu caste system, they have low status. Thus they are under bondage both to false religion and the false belief that they have little worth in the eyes of God or man.

Outreach Ideas

The Bible is available in their language in audio and online formats, so they can encounter and respond to God's Word. There is always a need for those who will use the local culture's music and drama forms to present the life of Christ.

Scripture Focus

"Their offspring shall be known among the nations, and their descendants in the midst of the peoples; all who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are an offspring the LORD has blessed."  Isaiah 61:9

Scripture Prayer

Pray that those who live near today’s people group will want their spiritual blessings after they submit to the Lord Almighty.

Prayer Focus

Ask the Lord to write his story of the Behara people and that they would embrace it and make it their story as well. Pray for them to realize that they were created to worship him, and for them to joyfully do so. Pray for the Holy Spirit to sweep through this people group, drawing them into his Kingdom, family by family.
