If you use pottery and other clay goods, you are like many in India. The Kumhars are the communities that expertly make these goods and sell them. They also make toys and even Hindu idols with clay or terracotta. There are a couple of Kumhar communities, one of which is called Bardiha.

Ministry Obstacles

The Bardiha Kumhar people live in parts of India where the church is weak or even non-existent. Without believers in their own community, the Bardiha Kumhar people cannot understand how their own people can walk like Jesus walked.

Outreach Ideas

Believers can offer them Global Recordings Network materials and Scriptures in Use materials so they can listen to God's word as they work. God's word does not return void!

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Since there are no known believers among the Bardiha Kumhars, pray that they will hear and respond to the Lord's voice.

Pray for the Entire People Group

* Pray for a movement of Jesus to heal and strengthen Bardiha Kumhar communities.
* Pray that Bardiha Kumhar council leaders will come to Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that the church around the world will remember them in intercession.
