Introduction

The Dusadh are often employed as village watchmen and messengers Their primary vocation is seeking alms while singing Kapila Mangal and Sitala Mangal songs. Some work in agriculture. They worship Garaya, Baghat, Garam Gossain, Kudra, Barpahar, Manasa, Satbahni, Shiva, Durga, Lakshmi, Sitala and other deities.


Ministry Obstacles

Christian workers need to note the extreme poverty of the Dosadh community, and not neglect their material and physical needs.


Outreach Ideas

Christians need to serve these people by helping improve their living conditions. Friendships based upon trust are needed.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for the Christian believers that will someday be found among the Dosadh community, that they will be zealous to know and serve the Lord.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray they will have good schools available for their children and desire to send their children to school. Pray for an improved standard of living.
