Lori in Pakistan

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The Lori people migrated to Pakistan and Iran from either India or Pakistan's Sind Province. They were once carpenters, blacksmiths, musicians, and entertainers. Some were jugglers, palm readers, and fortune-tellers. Others prepared wedding feasts and festivities. Still others sold donkeys before modern ways of transporting goods became available. Some of their women were midwives.

Where are they located?
They live in Iran and Pakistan's Baloch Province. Though they live among the Baloch and speak a Baloch based language, they are not Baloch.

What are their lives like?
There are two Lori groups: One is settled, and the other is nomadic. The nomadic Loris tend livestock, and are always in search of adequate water and grazing land. Some probably still take on the odd jobs mentioned earlier.

What are their beliefs?
The Lori people are 100 percent Muslim. They have a tale that they were cursed to wander forever because their disdain for the Archangel Gabriel was reported to the Prophet Mohammed.

Prayer Points
* Pray for the Lori people in Pakistan and Iran to have the chance to hear of and respond to the Savior, Jesus Christ.
* Pray that they will soon understand that they are blessed if they embrace the One who paid for all sins.
* Pray for a church planting movement among the Lori people in Balochistan.
