Introduction / History

These people are divided into three subgroups, the Sniardai, Sultana, and Afghanis. The Arandui live in the southern part of northern Pakistan's Chitral District, which is situated among some of the world's largest mountain peaks; the lowest elevation in the area is 3,600 ft. This district is cut off from the rest of the country during six months of the year due to snow. The Arandi Narisati are primarily found in Pakistan and Afghanistan.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Deep valleys and powerful rivers are mixed in between the mountainous slopes. Embroidery, finger rings, rugs, woodwork, and fruit are items common to the area.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Sunni Islam is the practiced religion and there are no known Christian believers among them. Gawar-Bati is their heart language in which they need resources, although they do have gospel recordings. Many are bilingual in Pashto, in which there are Christian resources available.


What Are Their Needs?

The Arandi Narisati people need to submit to Jesus Christ so they can experience the abundant life He offers them in John 10:10.
