Adi in India

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The Adi people are spread through China, Bhutan and India. The greatest concentration of Adi resides in Arunachal Pradesh, India. They represent one of the largest people groups in that state.

What are their lives like?
Like the Adi in other parts of this region, those living in India are largely isolated from other people groups and even other Adi villages. They are very independent in social and political matters.

What are their beliefs?
Thankfully, more than 20% of Adi people in India have chosen to follow Christ. They can be used by God to reach other Adi people in China and Bhutan. The majority, however, continue to practice traditional religions that involve shamans.

What are their needs?
The Adi of India have God’s Word in their language and nearly 15,000 have heard and responded to the gospel. They now need training in discipleship and mission, along with focused prayer for God’s Kingdom to spread throughout their communities.

Prayer Points
Pray for the Adi believers in India to go to the Adi people in Bhutan and China with the gospel. Pray for mission workers to invest in leadership training and assisting the Adi in gaining momentum for a church planting movement. Pray for spiritual receptivity that will result in the Adi people loving and obeying the Lord.
