Chamar (Hindu traditions) of India
The Chamar deities are Bahiroba, Janai, Kandova of Jejori and Bhawani of Tuljapur. They follow the spiritual teachings of Ravidas. They recite mythological tales and sing songs from the religious epics. The dead body of a bachelor is buried lying on its back with the head facing south, whereas others are cremated and their mortal remains are immersed in sacred water.
The Hindu Chamar speak over 50 languages. Separate church planting projects may be needed for each language.
Stories from Scripture, Gospel recordings, and films may communicate effectively to these people.
Pray for the few Christian believers among the Hindu Chamar, that they will fellowship together, being united in love around truth. Pray they will be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
Pray the Chamar will understand that God their creator loves them and has sent his Son to provide forgiveness for their sins, and sent his Holy Spirit to help them with the challenges of life.
"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance." Psalm 33:12
