Kinnaura of India
The traditional occupations of the Kanaura are agriculture, trade and sheep-rearing, which they continue to pursue even today. Kanaura religion is a mixture of Buddhism and Hinduism. According to the 1981 census, their literacy rate was 34.8%. The women of this community perform all the agricultural and household work, contribute to the family income and control family expenditures.
The Kanaura community has a fairly low literacy rate, suggesting written Gospel materials will have limited usefulness. They need to be supplemented with oral communication.
Christians can carry the Gospel of Christ to the Kanaura community through use of Gospel films and recordings, and also by telling stories from Scripture.
Some followers of Jesus among the Kanaura community have been identified. Pray they will learn to live in the power of Christ's Spirit, also being quick to repent of sin. Pray they will learn to speak to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs.
Pray the Kanaura community will be able to care adequately for their families. Pray they will be prepared to understand and receive the good news of Jesus when it comes to them.
"The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest." Matthew 9:37-38
