Introduction / History

The Pamidi are a subgroup of the larger Kapu people who live mainly in the Kadapa and Anantapur districts of Andhra Pradesh near Odisha. They have their own subgroups. One of them is the prestigious Kshatriya Pamidi who say their ancestors were one of the warrior castes.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Though the Pamidi people are mainly farmers, they also engage in craftsmanship; they produce embroidery, baskets and pottery.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Though the Pamidi are Hindus, they have their own unique practices and deities.


What Are Their Needs?

They need the Holy Spirit to open their eyes so they can see Jesus as he is.


Prayer Points

Pray for the Lord to bless this community economically and spiritually.

Ask God to raise up Pamidi who are more desirous to know the truth than to stay on the broad road.

Ask God to send loving, committed workers to the Pamidi in the near future.

Pray the Pamidi would no longer be hidden away from the influence of Christ.

Pray for many of them to make disciples who will make even more disciples.
