What are their beliefs?
They are Sunni Muslims who have also been influenced by Sufism. There are Sufi shrines in Sindhi communities.

What are their needs?

Prayer Points
* Pray that Sindhi people will be liberated by God's Holy Spirit from the many ties that bind them to lives devoid of Christ's blessings.
* Pray that Sindhi people will see past their respective traditional worship to the futility of it all and experience a growing desire to know the truth of God's Word.
* Pray for the Lord to multiply the reception and influence of His Word among Sindhi people, leading them to love Him with their whole being.
* Pray for the Holy Spirit to anoint Sindhi families, especially the children and youth, and to raise up a new generation of fruitful, multiplying witnesses of Christ's mercy and love.
