The Parenga are a Scheduled tribe that lives in the district of Koraput in Odisha. They speak Oriya.
They work in cultivation and agriculture. The women help their husbands in farm work. The Parenga are monogamous meaning that marriage is between one man and one woman. They have several clans. They allow for remarriage. The Parenga have a council to look after their needs. They have a low literacy level so the gospel will need to be presented in oral forms.
They have a tribal religion.
The Parenga people need the transforming power of Jesus Christ so they can experience His spiritual, economic and social blessings.
Pray that the council leaders will come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him. Pray that gospel recordings and the JESUS Film will become easily available to them. Pray for intercessors and workers.
