Thank you for praying!

Kurmi, Hindu in Nepal

The Kurmi are believed to be descendants of some of the earliest Aryan immigrants to India and come from the Kshatriyas (warrior caste) who became farmers. Kurmi are known in India as the chief agricultural caste. Modern Kurmi are relatively prosperous and educated. Their lifestyle is associated with farming and trading. Due to their agricultural link, the Kurmi are viewed as one of the 'backward' or lower castes. Some Kurmi have formed a national movement in the northern and eastern Indian regions for advocacy purposes. The Kurmi are Hindu, and worship Ram, Shankar, Hanuman, Vishnu, Niranjan, Nagdeo, and other dieties. Girls among the Kurmi receive education up to the primary level while boys are encouraged to study further.

Ministry Obstacles

Much spiritual darkness and opposition to the Gospel is found throughout South Asia. Only the Lord can bring light to the darkness.

Outreach Ideas

The overall population of Kurmi is very large. Pray there will be many interactions with true believers everywhere they live who will obey the prompting of the Holy Spirit to share Christ with them.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

A few Kurmi in Nepal have reported themselves as Christians to the census. Pray these people will honor the Lord by how they live their lives, and will be a shining testimony to others in their community.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Please pray that those in the Kurmi community who are unable to care for themselves adequately will find help in their villages and in their community.

Scripture Focus

"Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed." Acts 17:30-31
