Charodi in India

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
Charodi people are believed to have migrated from Goa in four boats. They apparently took on the names of the places where they landed in Karnataka. Char means "4," and Hodi means "boat."

The Charodi people speak Goan Konkani, the language of Goa.

Where are they located?
The Charodi people live in Karnataka, a state in southwestern India.

What are their lives like?
They are known to be carpenters. No information was available about their work, family, and lifestyle issues.

What are their beliefs?
Charodi people practice Hinduism, the ancient religion of India. They worship and serve the gods of the Hindu pantheon. Hindus believe that by performing rituals and good works that they will attain moksha or freedom from the endless cycle of birth, death and rebirth. 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 many forms of Hinduism, each with its own deities and beliefs.

What are their needs?
Although audio, visual and written Bible resources are available in Goan Konkani, their spoken languages, they remain unreached and unengaged with the truth of the gospel. Their greatest need is to understand the infinite love of Almighty God for them, and His provisional payment of the penalty for their sins.

Prayer Points
Pray for families of Charodi believers loving and serving others to grow reproducing churches.
Pray for a chain reaction of Charodi families reaching families that results in thousands of new believers who share their faith with others.
Pray for grace and truth expanding into the entire Charodi society as all believers learn to love others.
Pray that churches and believers will bless their entire people group in such a way that God's love will change the Charodi people like yeast changes dough.
