Introduction

Most Gangauta people live in the Indian state of Bihar. Their primary occupation is agriculture. Some Gangauta have their own land but most work as landless laborers. They grow rice, wheat and other crops. A caste community council promotes their interests and settles legal disputes. They have a low literacy rate because their children must often work in the fields to support their families. Hindi is their main language.


Ministry Obstacles

Many Gangauta cannot read or write so the gospel must be presented in oral forms.


Outreach Ideas

Workers can come to the rural Gangauta and help them in meeting their physical needs and in educating their children as a way to earn a hearing among their leaders.


Prayer Focus

There are no known believers among the Gangauta. Hindu background believers can help some of the Gangauta come to know the Savior. Pray that the community council leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others of the Gangauta to Him.
Pray that gospel recordings and Hindi radio programs will lead them to salvation.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to give the Teli Gangauta people teachable and understanding hearts that will result in spiritual growth in Jesus.
