Introduction / History

The grandfather's arms were flailing and his voice was loud as he told the wide-eyed little boys sitting around his feet about the mighty warriors they had as ancestors. The boys asked, "Where did they live, Grandpa? Who did they fight?" Creating even more excitement and curiosity in his listeners, he said, "We Manns may have come from a region around the Caspian Sea." He then pulled a book off of the shelf and turned to a page with a map, a picture of a coin, and a story. The story speculated that coins found in that region belonged to the Mannai people who lived west of the Caspian Sea. In the 8th Century B.C., they had a kingdom called Manniai, later called Armenia (Ari-Man).


Where Are they Located?

Today the Mann Jats live primarily in Punjab and Haryana states of India.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Most of their families are engaged in farming, but they have historically been recognized as warriors. Some Christian anthropologists believe that God has preserved for Himself a testimony in every culture.


Prayer Points

* Pray that God will reveal cultural keys among the Mann Jats that will spark a hunger for them to know more about His spiritual truth.
* Pray that God will give His servants wisdom and strategies to use these keys to promote the gospel message among the Mann Jat people group.
* Pray that God will raise up Armenian believers to go to the Mann people with God's truth.
