Psalm 135:15-18, NIV
The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of human hands. They have mouths, but do not speak; they have eyes, but do not see; they have ears, but do not hear, nor is there any breath in their mouths. Those who make them become like them, so do all who trust in them.

Pray for spiritual openness among Hindus in the West. Pray that they will gladly exchange their idols for Jesus Christ, the resurrected Lord.

Hindi Speaking Hindus

by DA, guest writer from Global Gates

India is home to over 2,000 unreached people groups speaking thousands of different languages. Among the largest and most unreached people groups in India are the Hindi speakers, most of whom are Hindu. Hindus believe in 330 million different names and forms of god. They bow down to their idols looking for favor, but instead they become like their idols. They are blinded to the truth, but God is at work. These people groups who have little access to the gospel in the cities and villages where they were born are coming by the thousands to Gateway Cities across the United States for work and education. Often times those coming are from high castes which missionaries in India struggle to gain access to. They come west with hopes of a new life and are more accessible and often more open to the gospel than they would be back home. The Metro areas surrounding New York, Chicago, Washington DC, San Francisco, and Houston are home to over 100,000 Indian Hindus, many of whom speak Hindi.
