Ministry Obstacles
Hinduism produces a very different understanding of spiritual issues than does the Christian Bible. Changing a person's understanding and belief system radically is usually a slow and painful process.

Outreach Ideas
Please pray the few followers of Jesus today within this community will grow in numbers and in spiritual maturity. They have the potential of taking the Gospel message to all of their own caste as they become stronger.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Please pray for the Velama who have reported themselves as Christians to the Indian census. Pray they will lead holy lives and will learn to live in the power of God's Spirit, demonstrating love, joy, peace, and all the fruit of the Spirit.

Pray for the entire people group
Please pray the Velama caste will be set free from the bondage of the caste system, and be drawn to the freedom found in knowing Jesus Christ. See John 8:36, "if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed."
