Introduction / History

The Jihotia are a Brahmin people living in India. They live in Uttarh Pradesh. Bundelkh is the language they speak among themselves and they speak Hindi with those not in their people group. They read and write in Devanagari.

The Jihotia are vegetarians in a strict way and will not eat garlic and onions. They like adult marriages through discussion. Monogamy is the way for them. Widowers can marry again. Birth, marriage and death rituals are performed by them. The dead are cremated or buried.

The Brahmin Jihotia are land owners. They are priests by tradition and some work as cultivators, some in government service and others have their own businesses. There are professionals among them such as doctors and engineers. They are Hindus who worship many gods. There is an authority to look after their community.


Prayer Points

* Pray that pride will not get in the way of the Brahman receiving Jesus Christ.
* Pray that God will give the Brahmin Jihotia dreams and visions leading them to salvation.
* Pray that the Brahmin Jihotia authorities will come to Jesus Christ and lead their community to Him too.
