The Sargara are a landless community.
Their traditional and present-day occupation is splitting and selling wood. Those who breach community norms are fined and ostracized.
They profess Hinduism, and Chammunda and Ambajee are their family deities. Their regional deities are Hanumanjee, Shankar, Mahakali and Ramdevjee. To follow Jesus is to breach community norms, bringing significant ostracism and disfavor.
Christians need to help the Sargara people with physical and material needs, as well as telling them of Jesus.
There likely are no followers of Jesus among the Sargara community today, but pray for those the Lord will soon lead to himself. Pray they will fully grasp the significance of Jesus' sacrificial death and will trust him fully for both forgiveness of sin and power to live life.
Pray they will have power to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.
Pray for God's blessing on the leaders in the Sargara community, along with their families, and for their people to welcome and enjoy God's provision.
Pray they will not find satisfaction in the worship of created things but will be given a hunger to worship the Creator.
