Purig-Pa in Kashmir

by KH

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. Romans 1:20, NASB
The Purig-Pa are a small almost unreached and unengaged people group of 46,000 concentrated in Kashmir. They are surrounded by some of the most beautiful mountains and countryside in the world. They are almost 100 percent Muslim with few believers among them. Most Purig-Pa people are either small farmers or nomadic shepherds. They live either in village clusters or in single dwellings. The nomads live in tents and travel with their herds. Others are private landowners or craftsmen.
Operation World notes that increasing numbers of Purig-Pa people and other smaller Muslim groups are coming to faith in Jesus Christ; they range in numbers from fewer than 100 in 2001 to more than 1,000 in 2010. Those who receive their savior as their sin-bearer face many dangers. Resources are available in the Purik language: the Bible, the JESUS Film, gospel recordings, and radio broadcasts.

Pray that these people will ask the important question, “Who made these beautiful mountains?” and recognize the holiness and righteousness of the creator. Pray that Islamist extremism may cause Muslims to seek an alternative way to God, and find it in Jesus. Ask him to raise up strong local churches and disciple making movements.
