Introduction

The Rahmani, (or Rai Bhat) work mainly as farmers. They are not well educated so the gospel will need to be given in oral forms. However, there are also prominent people among them. The Rahmani surname spans a number of countries.


Ministry Obstacles

They are Sunni Muslims, and there is much social stigma about “becoming a Christian” in their families and communities. They need to find a way to embrace Jesus Christ without alienating the people they are closest to.


Outreach Ideas

Culturally appropriate music and skits about the miracles of Isa (Jesus) might help to turn their hearts and minds to the only Savior.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are no followers of Christ among this Muslim people group, so pray for a spiritual breakthrough.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for a spiritual hunger that will draw the Rahmani people to the only One who can save them from sin and death.
Pray for workers to go to them and find those who will welcome them and listen to the message.
Pray for Rahmani community leaders who will give Jesus a chance to provide their community with the abundant life He offers in John 10:10.
Pray for a movement to Christ among this Muslim people group.
