Romani, Vlax in Pakistan

Romani originated in North India, now Pakistan, many centuries ago. They no longer live nomadic lifestyles to the extent once experienced, but are often quite poor, with high illiteracy and high death rates. They have a reputation for crime, leading to ostracism. They tend to adopt the religion of the peoples around them.

Ministry Obstacles

They live in a region where access to the Gospel message is quite limited.

Outreach Ideas

Good communication tools are available in the language of the Romani. Workers are needed to take the Gospel message to these people.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There are few if any believers among the Romani of Pakistan, but pray there will soon be a growing church. Pray for these new believers to be accurately taught the Scriptures, and to grow into real disciples of Christ.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for the Romani to seek good education for their children, and to live honest and productive lives. Pray they will hunger for the righteousness to be found in Christ.

Scripture Focus

"Do you not say, 'There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest?' Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest." John 4:35
