Sindhi in United States

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Summary
In a way, all Indians are Sindhis, because territorially they derive their identity from the river Sindhu or Indus. However, there is one community known as the Sindhi. Social division exists on the basis of occupation. The prevailing religion of the Sindhi is a blend of two faiths. They worship Shiva, the river god Jhulelal, and Mother goddess.

Ministry Obstacles
Sindis in the United States may encounter only nominal Christians, presenting a partially false picture of who Christ is and what He accomplished on the cross.

Outreach Ideas
There are many zealous Christian believers in the United States. Pray that some be given a heart to carry the Gospel message to the Sindhi.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray for the few Christian believers among the Sindhi in the U.S., that they will be properly instructed in the faith and will grow into mature believers, honoring Christ with the quality of their lives. Pray they will know Christ's love that surpasses knowledge.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray that each individual of the Sindhi community will increasingly realize his or her opportunity to know forgiveness of sin and new life found in Jesus Christ.

Scripture Focus
"Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me." Matthew 25:40
