Introduction / History

The Bind are a Maithili speaking Hindu people group. Though most live in India, some live in Nepal and Bangladesh.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Women get married young, and they spend their lives caring for children and the home. Women seldom receive an education.


What Are Their Beliefs?

They practice the Hindu religion and worship family deities as well as traditional Hindu gods. They are among the least reached peoples, and few will ever meet a Christ follower.


What Are Their Needs?

They have no idea that Jesus loves them and has provided for all their spiritual needs.


Prayer Points

Ask God to prepare their hearts even now for the day when the Bind people hear the gospel.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to move miraculously in West Bengal where few people have the eternal hope that comes from a relationship with Jesus.
Pray that the Bind people will learn about Christ and embrace him alone.
