Introduction / History

Chhipa people of India lived first in Nagaur in the State of Rajasthan. The word "Chhipa" comes from the Gujarati word "Chhapa" which means to print.


Where Are they Located?

Chhipa people now live mainly in Rajasthan and Gujarat.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Chhipa people speak Urdu, Hindi and local dialects. They dye and print of fabrics in red, blue and black patterns. They intermarry, but strongly favor marriage to cousins.


What Are Their Beliefs?

A Chhipa can be a Sikh, Hindu or a Muslim.


What Are Their Needs?

One can only imagine the spiritual confusion involved with three major religions within an unreached people group. Bible resources exist in Urdu and Hindi, but Chhipa people remain unreached. They need open hearts to hear God's answers to their spiritual problems.


Prayer Points

* Pray that Chhipa people will be liberated by God's Holy Srit from the many ties that bind them to lives devoid of Christ's blessings.
* Pray that Chhipa people will see past their respective traditional worship to the futility of it all, and experience a growing desire to know the truth of God's Word.
* Pray for the Lord to multiply the reception and influence of His Word among the Chhipas, leading them to love Him with their whole being.
* Pray for the Holy Spirit to anoint Chhipa families, especially the children and youth, and to raise up a new generation of fruitful, multiplying witnesses of Christ's mercy and love.
