Gujaratis in the UK have taken on western dress, speak the English language and strive for the Western level of success. Yet, most have retained their traditional religion, Hinduism. Gujaratis feel connected to their mother country, India, and stay in contact with their relatives there. Most of the immigrants to the UK are concentrated in large cities where they face problems such as crime and drug abuse.
Gujaratis are Hindus, and their religion offers them some connection with their homeland, India, while Christianity is one foreign element they can avoid. Gujaratis are famous for running successful businesses, which can sometimes become an idol.
Bible resources exist in the Gujarati language. Followers of Christ have opportunities in the workplace to pass these along to Gujarati coworkers in hopes they will share them with their families.
Pray for the small remnant of true believers among Gujaratis to be discipled and to lead others to the saving gospel. Pray for a spiritual hunger among Gujarati Hindus that will lead them to the only Savior.
Pray for people who have the right background to go to them.
Pray that the UK will be an incubator for a Gujarati movement to Christ.
