The Munda people have always been farmers. They live in Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, the United States, and especially eastern India.
Most are agricultural workers, but some do basket weaving or they sell wood and products from the forest. Unlike some tribal groups, their children get an education. They have community councils to judge in local matters. The Munda people favor cross-cousin marriages. Divorce can be difficult to get. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property, and the oldest son becomes in charge of the home. They do not eat beef. Rice is their main cereal.
Many of them are Hindus. The Munda worship their ancestors and nature spirits. The Munda have a lot of deities, with Sing Bonga being their main one.
The Munda people need to submit to Jesus Christ so they can experience the abundant life he offers them in John 10:10.
Pray that God will give the Munda dreams and visions leading them to salvation. Pray that the Munda Christians will lead the others in their group to Jesus Christ. Pray for the Lord to provide for their physical and spiritual needs as a testimony of his power and love. Pray that the Munda people will have a spiritual hunger that will open their hearts to the King of kings. Pray for workers who are driven by the love and boldness of the Holy Spirit to go to them. Pray for a movement to Christ among them to begin this decade.
