Introduction / History

Barot was traditionally an honorific title. This is a community that lives in Gujarat and speaks Gujarati. Traditionally they read genealogies and myths for a living, but they have lost enough clients that they now do other things.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Some work in government service or in private businesses. Women help with their financial matters. The gospel may need to be presented in oral forms since their literacy rate is low. In the urban regions they use modern medicines but in rural regions they favor traditional medicines. They love drama and dancing.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Turi Barot people practice Hinduism, the ancient religion of India. They worship and serve the gods of the Hindu pantheon. They fear these gods, not out of respect, but for their lives and safety. They have no peace or assurance of eternal life.


What Are Their Needs?

The community needs to experience the abundant blessings that only Jesus Christ can offer. Older Turi Barot people are mostly illiterate; younger people are seeking opportunities to leave their region for educational and employment opportunities for a better life. They need to be exposed to their real options in Jesus' provision for the payment of their sins.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Turi Barot in India.

* Pray for believers to go to them with culturally appropriate songs and dramas that exalt the name of Jesus Christ. * Pray that many Turi Barot people will respond to the gospel, and that a disciple making movement will begin throughout their region. * Pray that the Lord will raise up many intercessors to pray for Turi Barot families to welcome disciples who can bring God's truth to them.
