Sindhollu people are traditionally itinerant dramatists who travel throughout central India telling stories regarding roots of the people. This tradition has been carried from one generation to another.
The Sindhollu community lives in Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, and Karnataka, all states in central India.
Sindhollu people are suffering the demise of a market for their dramas, dancing and storytelling. They are very poor, living in structures of tied together reeds, covered by cast away clothes and blankets. They are professional beggars, uneducated and unable to take advantage of government aids.
The Sindhollu people practice Hinduism, the religion of most people in India. Hinduism is actually a catch-all term for the various religious practices in this part of the world, so it is very diverse.
Although audio, visual and written Bible resources are available in Telugu, their spoken language, they remain unreached with the truth of the gospel. Their greatest need is to understand the infinite love of Almighty God for them, and His provisional payment of the penalty for their sins. They need to be set free by the sin-forgiving Savior!
* Scripture Prayers for the Sindhollu in India.
* Pray for the Sindhollu culture to be renewed and enhanced by a work of the * Holy Spirit and shaped into a God-centered and God-honoring mold.
* Pray for the Holy Spirit to move among Sindhollu family and community leaders to seek His face and enjoy His blessings.
* Pray for the Lord to thrust out workers who will be compelled to nurture a disciple-making movement among the Sindhollu people.
* Pray that soon Sindhollu family leaders will have faith that will lead them to live honorable lives that will draw others to the Savior.
