In Maharashtra they speak Konkani. They read and write in Kannada and Malayalam. They are similar socially to those in Karnataka.
The Rajapuri in Karnataka work in cultivation. Some work in trade, business and as day laborers. They often marry their cousins. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming the new family head.
The Rajapuri are Hindus.
They need the abundant life that only Jesus Christ can offer the nations.
Pray that Indian believers will help them begin their own movement to Christ. Pray for a spiritual hunger that will lead them to the only savior. Pray for intercessors and workers.
