This people group originated in the Indian states of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar before they went as indentured servants to Curacao, just north of South America to work in salt mines and plantations.
The Hindu Sarnami people are found in the three small countries on the northern tip of South America, the Netherlands, and Curacao. Curacao is an island in the Caribbean Sea, just off the coast of Venezuela.
Oil, shipping, and tourism are important industries in Curacao. Most likely the Hindi Sarnami people are involved in these industries. This country has a high standard of living by Caribbean standards.
The majority of the Hindi Sarnami people in Curacao are Hindu. Only about one percent of them are Christian of any kind.
The Hindi Sarnami people in Curacao need a spiritual hunger that will lead them to Jesus Christ.
Pray for spiritual receptivity among these Hindus.
There are Christian resources in their language. Pray that the Hindi Sarnami people in Curacao will eagerly listen to them and be drawn to the Lord.
Pray for a disciple making movement to emerge among the Hindi Sarnami people on the island of Curacao.
