I am basically a church planter in the state of Odisha. It is in India. We are working among non Christians and unreached people groups. We are presently engaged with BHOTADA, PANKA, PANO, KUVI AND DOMBO. We do not have literature or audio-visuals for BHOTODA and PANKA. BHOTODA is a largest tribal group. They are spreaded over in almost two states. It is also very hard to penetrate the gospel and they are not very much receptive. We are praying and working among them and received very few positive response. We covet your sincere prayer. Christodan Takri
