Communities where He is least known
The Quetta Hazara are mainly Shia Muslims who have suffered greatly from terrorist attacks. Local Christians are reaching out, but SIM is still unable to visit this high security area.
Marwari Bhil and Mengwal
These people groups are mainly Hindu subsistence farmers, with limited access to education, health facilities and water. SIM has been ministering amongst these groups since the 1960s, but vast areas are still not reached.
The gypsies of Lahore
The gypsies often live in tents and make a living collecting rubbish. Gypsy children are poorly educated, and their parents often send them to work as garbage pickers. SIM partners with local Christians in ministry to reach the gypsies of Lahore.
The Punjab region is estimated to be 96.82 per cent Muslim. Christians make up around 2.6 per cent of the population. Pray for positive relationships amongst Christians and their neighbors.
