Moger in India

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

The traditional vocation of the Moger was hunting and gathering, and the name Moger is derived from a Tulu word meaning rabbit. At present, many are employed as agricultural laborers. They are Hindus and worship spirits such as Panjurli, Kallurti, Guliga, and Bobbariya. They accept water and cooked food from the Bunt, Billava, Brahmin, Devadiga and others who are considered to be high castes. They are subdivided into a number of matrilineal clans. They marry across clan lines but not outside the Moger community.

Ministry Obstacles
Most Moger live in Karnataka, described as "South India's most spiritually needy state…there are now over 1,000 attacks each year by Hindu militants against Christians."

Outreach Ideas
South India has a fairly large Christian population. Pray for these Christians to become burdened to take the good news of Jesus Christ to those around them, including Hindu and Muslim people groups.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There has been no indication any of the Moger have come to follow Jesus Christ. However, we can have confidence there will be believers someday among the Moger, and we can pray for them even now. Pray they will be zealous to know and serve the Lord.

Pray for the entire people group
Please pray the Moger people will come into contact with Christians in other communities who are real disciples of Jesus, people who will demonstrate the love of Christ to them.

Scripture Focus
Who can utter the mighty deeds of the LORD, or declare all his praise?
