The Megh (or Meghwal) are a scheduled caste whose primary occupation is farming.
Nowadays, the caste prejudice against them has died down to a large extent except in some remote areas. They have achieved moderate progress in education and their literacy rate has been improving.
The Hindus among the Megh community worship Ram Devji and Bankar Mataji as the chief god and goddess of the community.
Workers are needed to take the gospel message to this Hindu community in Pakistan.
Pray the Lord will give Megh families understanding and responsive hearts as they hear about the love of Christ.
Pray they will accurately understand the message of the gospel of Christ and be able to teach it accurately to others in their community.
Pray for an improvement in living conditions for this low caste community, for educational opportunities for the children, and employment opportunities for the adults.
