Introduction

The Kumals are regarded as one of the ancient indigenous peoples/nationalities of Nepal. They are scattered in various areas of the country. The traditional occupation of Kumals is making clay pots. Recently, they have become dependent on agriculture and animal husbandry. Women have equal status with men. They worship their family god, Same (god of beasts), snake gods and goddesses, Banaskhandi, or gods and goddesses of forests, and others.


Ministry Obstacles

The Kumal of Nepal speak over 20 languages. Evangelistic and church planting projects need to take these into account.


Outreach Ideas

Increasing numbers in Nepal are coming to know Christ in these days. Pray that some of these believers will remember to carry the good news of Jesus to the Kumal people.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for those who know and follow Christ among the Kumal community of Nepal. Pray they will grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and will be quick to repent of sin. Pray they will learn to live in the power of the Lord's Spirit.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Kumal community will be given the gift of knowledge about the Savior, Jesus Christ. Pray they will desire to worship the Creator, instead of created spirits.
