% Christian: 0.01%

Engaged: Yes
Workers Needed: 130
Description: The Sonar are a Hindu people group in Northern India whose primary occupation is as goldsmiths and jewellers. They are ranked as Vaisyas in the Hindu caste system, which is the business class.

Prayer Points:
• It is very difficult for lower-caste Christians in India to reach the high-caste Sonars. Pray that God would send workers to them who will be able to connect with them socially and bring Jesus into their community. Pray also that the good reputation of the Sonar might enable Sonar believers to impact the higher castes in India which resist the gospel.
• For a Sonar to accept Christ is to lose their standing in Hindu society and be considered almost as an outcaste. Pray for courage for those whom the Father is drawing to himself, and pray that they might be able to remain integrated with their families and society.
• The Sonar are a wealthy people who finance business endeavors all over India through private banking. Pray that this heritage might be transformed into supporting the spread of the gospel throughout India.

A Prayer: Heavenly Father, may your love for the Sonar be made known to them through the love of your people in India. Pour out your grace on their hearts and deliver them from all fear through the power of Jesus Christ.
Each year 67,000 Sonar die without Christ.
