Bhoi (Muslim traditions) in Pakistan

Introduction / History
The sacred tree's future husband strode down the dusty road with a small band of friends for his first marriage. Majed was nervous. As a bachelor, it was demanded by Bhoi customs that he first marry a sacred flower-laden tree before he could marry a widow. His true love, Nubila, was a widow. If marrying a tree was what it would take to spend the rest of his life with the love of his life, then it was worth it.
Bhoi is the name of a caste of fishermen and boat people. Their alternate name is Kewat from the Sanskrit words ka, meaning "water," and vritti, meaning "occupation." A landless and mostly illiterate people group, they are considered a low caste of people who have degrading occupations.
Jesus, the good shepherd, would have left the many to rescue the one. Would someone go to rescue a people if there were only 200? What if there were only 100? Would someone give their life to rescue 50?

Prayer Points
* Pray that God will release a spiritual yearning in the hearts of the Bhoi people that only Christ can fill.
* Pray that their spirits will be opened to receive the words of life that can lift them into the heights of the Kingdom of God through faith in Christ.
