Kapali, Bangladesh

Yet another unreached people!

 
 
 

Kapali in Bangladesh

The Kapali are a Hindu agricultural caste spread primarily throughout West Bengal and Bangladesh. They are reputed to have at one time been Brahmins but have lost that status in the caste system. They have traditionally been a land owning community. Though divorce is not permissible, desertion may sometimes take place. Remarriage is allowed for both sexes in certain cases. The dead are cremated and pollution is observed for fifteen days. The death ritual Bachharkria is performed. They have family deities like Lakshmi, Narayan, Monasa, Sitala, Shiva, and others. The Kapalis follow their religious traditions with great devotion and piety.

Ministry Obstacles
The Kapali community is said to follow its religious traditions with devotion and piety.

Outreach Ideas
Persevering prayer is needed to prepare this community for the good news of Jesus Christ. After this preparation has occurred workers need to be sent to tell them this good news.

Pray for the followers of Christ
No Christians have been reported to the census of either Bangladesh or India from the Kapali community. There probably are no Christian believers, presently. But pray for those the Lord will soon draw to himself.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray this community will be given a hunger to know the living God, their Creator.

Scripture Focus
“Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.” Psa 96:2-3
