After slavery was outlawed throughout the British Empire, the English began to recruit indentured servants from various parts of the world including South Asia. Between 1845 and 1917, they brought Indians to Trinidad and Tobago to work in sugar cane and cocoa fields.
Trinidad and Tobago is an island just north of Venezuela.
Trinidad and Tobago now has the third wealthiest economy in the Americas after the US and Canada, according to Wikipedia. Their wealth comes largely from petroleum. The Hindi Sarnami people are probably involved with this industry.
About half of this people group is Hindu, and more than one-third of them are Christian in one form or another.
The Hindi Sarnami people in Trinidad and Tobago need a spiritual hunger that will lead them to allow Jesus Christ full control over their lives.
* Pray for spiritual receptivity.
* There are a number of Christian resources in their language. Pray that the Hindi Sarnami people will eagerly listen to them and be drawn to the Lord.
* Pray for a disciple making movement to emerge among the Hindi Sarnami people in Trinidad and Tobago.
