Marathi of United States

Ministry Obstacles
South Asian Hindus are a minority in the United States, so their religion is a means to maintaining their culture. They are already losing much of their cultural uniqueness by speaking English. Hinduism is a means to maintaining their cultural ties to India.

Outreach Ideas
It will take believers who are willing to learn about Hindu cultures and appreciate them before they approach Marathi people with the gospel. Some "desi" groups like Tamil speakers already have groups of strong believers. Someone will have to find ways for Marathi speakers to follow Jesus without feeling like they are abandoning what is left of their ancient culture.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Few if any Marathi speakers in the US follow Jesus. Pray for dreams and visions of the exalted Savior that will open the door for some to allow Him to enter their hearts.

Pray for the entire people group
* Pray for a T4T (Training For Trainers) movement among Marathi speakers in the US that will penetrate other South Asian communities, not only in North America, but also India.
