Introduction / History

The traditional occupation of Kumals is making clay pots. The Kumals are regarded as one of the ancient indigenous peoples/nationalities of Nepal though some live in India.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Recently, they have become dependent on agriculture and animal husbandry. Women have equal status with men.


What Are Their Beliefs?

They worship their family god, Same (god of beasts), snake gods and goddesses, Banaskhandi, or gods and goddesses of forests, and others.


What Are Their Needs?

The Kumal people speak many languages. Evangelistic and church planting projects need to take these into account.


Prayer Points

Pray the Lord will start a movement of Kumal families experiencing God's blessings.

Pray for those who know and follow Christ among the Kumal community will grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord and will be quick to repent of sin.

Pray Kamal Christian believers will learn to live in the power of the Lord's Spirit.

Pray for these potters to joyfully allow the Lord to mold them into his image.
