Ministry Obstacles
The Bakkawal people are said to have a very low literacy rate, and they live in an area that has little access to the good news of Christ. Jammu and Kashmir has been the scene of much fighting between the government of India and Muslim separatists.

Outreach Ideas
Please pray for Gospel radio to become available in the mountains and valleys of Kashmir, in the languages of the people.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Even though there is probably not a single Christian believer today among the Bakkarwal people, please pray for a church planting movement to soon begin within this people group. The Lord is able to do this.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray for a rising literacy rate among this pastoral group. Pray that parents will desire to provide schooling for their children and will find ways to accomplish this.
