Introduction

After 1858, under the British Raj, the Jats were known for their service in the Indian Army, being categorized as a "martial race" by the British. Today the Jat peoples are one of the most prosperous groups in India on a per capita basis. As a general rule, it’s the more prosperous and well-educated peoples from South Asia who are allowed to immigrate to Canada. Jat farmers are also known to be experts at producing a high yield, so these people are also welcome in other parts of the world.


Ministry Obstacles

Islam is a formidable obstacle to the gospel, even in the West.


Outreach Ideas

For Muslim Jats to be willing to consider the claims of Christ, they will need the community "gate keepers" to see that Christ has much to offer them. There are believers in Canada who can do this if they are willing to be patient and persevere.


Prayer Focus

Presently there are no known followers of Christ in Canada who have a Muslim Jat background. Pray for the Holy Spirit to give Jat Muslims in Canada the spiritual hunger necessary to seek and find the Savior. Pray for the Lord to penetrate entire Muslim Jat families and clans so that they can enjoy the blessings of being children of the King of kings. Pray for a movement of Jesus to heal and strengthen Jat communities.
