Gadaria (Muslim traditions) in Pakistan

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Summary
The Gadaria are largely shepherds and blanket-weavers. Women participate in the rearing of cattle and in the processing of wool. Property is divided equally among sons only; succession is by the eldest son. They are mainly engaged as laborers in masonry work, while some are involved in animal husbandry. Their literacy rate is low.

Ministry Obstacles
The low literacy rate suggests the Gospel message can best be communicated through scriptural stories told orally, and by films, radio, and recordings.

Outreach Ideas
Christian believers can build healthy relationships with the Gadaria, helping them with physical needs and introducing them to Christ.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray for the Christian disciples who will soon come to faith within the Gadaria community, that they live holy lives, zealous to know and serve the Lord.

Pray for the entire people group
Ask God to deliver families and communities within the Gadaria people from fears that hinder them from embracing His blessings. Pray for them to have adequate health care, be able to find honorable employment, and have good schools available for their children.

Scripture Focus
Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. Selah
