South Asian Unengaged Peoples

The Badhik of India, with a population of 18,000, have traditionally been hunters and gatherers, but today, they are primarily butchers. Some are employed as agricultural laborers. They often suffer from societal discrimination. The Badhik have a subsidiary income in animal husbandry, poultry, and drying and tanning skins. Pray that the Badhik will have opportunities to hear and receive the gospel. Pray that one day, there will be believers from the Badhik who “do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give” (John 6:27 ESV).
