The Eluthassan people live in Kerala, one of India's most Christianized states. They speak Malayalam, Kerala's language. They remain unreached, despite the fact that a high percentage of their neighbors follow the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.

Ministry Obstacles

The Eluthassan people identify with being Hindus. There are also enough false believers in their area to give them reason to distrust those who call themselves Christian.

Outreach Ideas

It will take Malayalam speakers with a heart for their Hindu neighbors to make sure they have the chance to experience life to the full, as Jesus offered.
