Introduction / History

For centuries the Ghosi people have been selling milk. This brings more status to those in Hindu communities than it does for those who are Muslim.

What Are Their Lives Like?

The Ghosi people sell milk. They make their way to nearby homes and sell milk to neighbors. Some take a long trek to town as for their milk business.

What Are Their Beliefs?

At one time all were Hindus, but some have converted to Islam, especially in Muslim Pakistan. There are spiritual obstacles that keep them away from their Savior.

Prayer Points

There are tracts, a fully translated Bible, and many other resources for hearing of the One who loves them and died and rose again for them. But they do not hear. Pray for the eyes of their hearts to be open to Jesus Christ.
Pray that prayer warriors will be raised up who will faithfully intercede for the hard ground of the Ghosi heart to be tilled and softened.
Pray that Christ's followers will be called to tell the story about Jesus to everyone in a culturally relevant way, simple and appealing, to this tiny speck of humanity.
