Bhansala in Pakistan

Profile Text

Introduction / History
The Kutchhi Bhanusali live throughout the western states of India, especially Rajasthan, Karnataka, Maharashtra, and Gujarat. A small number live over the international border in Pakistan’s Sindh Province.

What are their lives like?
Agriculture along with business and laboring are their main occupations. They are not well educated, so the gospel will need to be presented in oral form. The Kutchhi Bhanusali are endogamous, meaning that they prefer to marry within their community or clan. Marriage is arranged through the parents. On the death of the father, sons and daughters inherit the property.

What are their beliefs?
The Kutchhi Bhanusali people practice Hinduism, the ancient religion of India. Hinduism is a catch-all phrase for the local religions of South Asia, so it is very diverse. At the popular level, Hindus worship and serve the gods of the Hindu pantheon. They visit Hindu temples and offer prayers, food, flowers, and incense to their gods in hopes of gaining protection and benefits. They do not have a personal or familial relationship with their gods like Christians or Jews. There are other Hindus who are much more philosophical, especially among the Brahmins.

What are their needs?
The Bhansala people need to have a relationship with Jesus Christ that will lead to blessings and eternal salvation.

Prayer Points
Pray that gospel recordings and the JESUS Film will lead the Bhanusali to begin their own movement to Christ. Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to the Savior. Pray for intercessors and workers.
