Psalms 67:1-2 NKJV
God be merciful to us and bless us, and cause his face to shine upon us. Selah. That your way may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.

Pray that God’s mercy and his salvation will be known by each of these tribes we are praying for today.

India Gospel Outreach Work in Odisha

by JS

Who are the Adibas? It is not the name of a tribe, but it is the name of a cluster of 13 tribes who have been called, “particularly vulnerable tribal groups.” They live in Odisha, a state in eastern India. Actually, there are 62 separate tribal groups in the state, but only 13 of them fit into the “particularly vulnerable” category.
The Odisha Bible Training Center (OBTC) sponsored by India Gospel Outreach (IGO) is a school where evangelists from Odisha are trained. The Adibas constitute 22 percent of Odisha’s population—a significant number of people who desperately need a disciple making movement.
As a reader, consider particularly adopting one of these groups to pray for on a daily basis. These are the 13 tribal groups that need daily prayer: Santal, Munda, Saura, Kui, Ho, Sadri, Gadaba, Kandhas, Bhuiya, Bhumjo, Mankidia, Juango, and Dongria Khonda. Recently the New Testament has been published in Juango and Gadaba.

Pray for graduates of the OBTC to be perfectly equipped to evangelize these very vulnerable tribes. Ask the Holy Spirit to prepare their hearts so that his word, when heard or read, will find fertile soil and can take root and grow and flourish. As they go out two by two, pray that they will be led to “men of peace” who will show hospitality to them as they teach and lead tribal members to Jesus.
