Introduction

Kachchia refers to "vegetable-growers", in the Gujarati language. All the male members suffix the term Patel to their names. There are several divisions among them based on economic levels or landholdings. Widow remarriage, preferably with the deceased husband's younger brother, or within the village, takes place with the approval of the caste council. Divorce is permitted, though it occurs rarely. They are Hindu.


Ministry Obstacles

People raised in Hinduism will likely find it difficult to comprehend the Gospel when if first comes to them, because of how different it is from all they have ever known.


Outreach Ideas

The Lord is drawing people to himself in India, in increasing numbers. Pray his Spirit will include the Kachhia caste as the Gospel moves through the land.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for those Kachhia who will soon come to Jesus as savior and lord, that they will live in harmony with each other, not proud, zealous to know and walk with the Lord.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for good crop yields for the Kacchia, and for rising educational levels. Pray for good schools, and that parents will understand the importance of sending their children to school.
