Ministry Obstacles

The high position of the Dhindhor Yadav in Indian society could be an obstacle for them to come to Christ and confess their need for a Savior.

There are currently no known believers among the Dhindhor Yadav. Pray that many come to Christ in the near future.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for a "Book of Acts" type of movement to Christ among the Dhindhor Yadav.
Pray that Dhindhor Yadav leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead their families and others to Him.
Pray that Lord opens the spiritual eyes of the Dhindhor Yadavs so they see the truth of their spiritual condition and come to Christ to have their sins forgiven.
