UNREACHED PEOPLE GROUP PRAYER:
THE BENGALI
Worldwide the Bengali number are over 1/4 Billion with 165 million in Bangladesh (mostly Muslim) and 88 million in West Bengal (mostly Hindu). Bangladesh is the most densely populated country in the world (1,142/sq km) and West Bengal is the most densely populated state in India (1066/sq km). Also large numbers, especially Hindus, have migrated over the Bangladeshi borders into the Indian states of Assam and Tripura looking for land and peaceful existence but also displacing local peoples. The Bengali peoples are about 0.6% Christian gathered in small scattered poor churches, many of them struggling to fully support their pastors.
