Is 52:7, NET
How delightful it is to see approaching over the mountains the feet of a messenger who announces peace, a messenger who brings good news, who announces deliverance, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

Pray for messengers of peace to soon come to the Bomba people of Jammu and Kashmir.

Bomba People

by AHS

One cannot find much information about the Bomba, and some of it is contradictory. Therefore what conclusions can we make? First, they are forgotten, hidden, or neglected by those outside of their communities. Secondly, we need to start praying for them because God wants them to become part of His holy family.
However, we do know some things. There are just fewer than 2,000 Bomba people. They are all Muslims. They are unengaged, meaning that there are currently no efforts being made to lead them to Christ. They live in the state of Jammu and Kashmir which is the site of territorial conflicts between India, Pakistan, and sometimes China.
There is some uncertainty about the languages they speak. One source tells us they speak Kashmiri and Bhadrawahi, while another source says they speak Dogri. Fortunately, there are printed and audio Bibles, the JESUS Film and audio gospel messages from Global Recordings Network (GRN) available in each of these languages.
So why are there no Bomba Christians? These languages are spoken by numerous people-groups, and the recordings and videos were produced in a different location and not readily available to the Bomba. Apparently, none of the Bomba people have heard the messages in their own languages.

Pray that God will open the door for the Bombas to hear the messages, which are now available on the Internet. Pray that believers in India will take the recordings and videos to the area where the Bomba people live.
