Introduction / History

The Lohar man often felt isolated, alone and like an outsider as he traveled from village to village offering his blacksmith skills to farmers who needed iron farming implements. He looked like many of the Lohar villagers, yet he was different. They were Hindu, and he was Muslim.


What are Their Lives Like?

Most of the Lohars are blacksmiths and have been practicing their trade for as long as they can remember. The Hindus among them have an elaborate mythology of their origin, and they observe the traditional Hindu festivals and cultural practices. The Muslim Lohars often face persecution because they are the minority group. Both groups need to know Jesus, the Savior. Like all people groups, there are Lohar people with leadership skills who can direct their people to the Savior, if only they would hear of Him and respond to His offer of salvation and love.


Prayer Points

* Pray that the Lord will make Himself known to the Muslim Lohar people, and that they will be open when they hear the truth about Jesus being lord and savior.
* Pray that God will lead His envoys to those whose hearts have been prepared to receive His Word.
* Pray that the Lohar people, be they Muslim or Hindu, will be ready to repent before a holy God.
