Dhangar Bharwad in Pakistan

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Summary
The word dhangar is derived from the Sanskrit word dhenu, meaning cow. They keep a special breed of cows and buffalo known as Dhangar mhasi and Dhangar gai. Children are named after ancestors, gods and goddesses. The sacred thread is worn during marriage. The deities specially worshipped are Khandoba and Biroba. Their literacy rate is very low.

Ministry Obstacles
Their low literacy rate is an obstacle if the Gospel comes to them only in printed form, but isn't necessarily a large obstacle if it comes in oral form.

Outreach Ideas
Teams to carry Gospel films, recordings and stories from Scripture will be helpful.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray that many of the Dhangar Bharwad will come to love God with their whole being and will walk in His ways. Pray Christian believers among the Dhangar community will become mature in the faith, able to have a bold, kind witness for Jesus to their neighbors.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Dhangar will increasingly hunger to know the creator God in a personal way.
