Scripture of the month: He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. (Luke 10:2)
The State of Uttar Pradesh in North-India has a population of 214 million people divided in 567 people groups! The Yadav population counts a little less then 14 million people of whom most of them never heard the Gospel or the Name of Jesus.
The Yadav are in Uttar Pradesh the second largest people group next to the Chamar numbering more then 23 million people! Followed by the Brahman (13 million), the Rajput (11 million) and the Shaikh (10 million)

Jesus said the harvest is plentiful and the workers are few! There are few or no places where this scripture is so to the point in every area of the society! Let’s not be overwhelmed by the need and numbers but let’s pray in the Name above every other name by faith and make a difference for millions!
Let’s pray for:
- Workers to be send out to Uttar Pradesh among the Chamar, the Yadav, the Brahman, the Rajput and the Shaikh!
- People group and church planting movements as never seen before!
Remember the prayer of Jabez: “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request. (1 Chronicles 4:10)

God’s love has to reach the ends of the earth!
