Introduction

Within the Adi Andhra community marriage between first cousins is common. Occupations include preparing and repairing leather footwear and any work related to skin and hides. There are sweepers, drum-beaters and wage laborers among them. Some groups are engaged in weaving cotton cloth. In urban areas, they share public wells, crematoria and temples with other communities. Hindus and Christian converts among them freely intermarry.


Ministry Obstacles

The Christians within this people group may not be living as real disciples of Jesus Christ. If this is true their Hindu neighbors may not have an accurate understanding of what it means to be a Christian.


Outreach Ideas

Perhaps the Christians in this group will grow in Christian maturity and in numbers such that the entire people group will hear the Gospel message, and hear it accurately.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There a number of individuals among the Adi Andhra who have reported themselves as Christians to the census of India. Please pray these Christians will come to a clear understanding of what it means to know Jesus as savior and to live in obedience to his commands. Pray for Christians married to Hindus to be able to win their spouses to Christ.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for the Hindu Adi Andhra to be given a hunger to know the creator God, one who stands outside his creation but who can be known through his Son, Jesus Christ.
