Introduction

The Gautam are a landowning community and their traditional occupation is farming. They have a number of clans and lineages. Marriage is settled through negotiation. Divorce is not allowed, but widow and widower remarriage is permitted. Parental property is inherited equally by the sons. They are Hindu by religion, and their clan deity is Babui Sati. A Brahmin officiates at their life-cycle rituals. The dead are cremated and the death rituals daswan, terhi, and barsi are observed.


Ministry Obstacles

People raised in the teachings of Hinduism find it difficult to understand and believe that there is only one God, and that he is very distinct from his creation.


Outreach Ideas

Pray that the believers who interact with this group would be compelled by the Holy Spirit to make friends with them and share the gospel with them clearly.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are no known followers of Jesus today among the Hindu Gautam community. Pray the Lord will begin to stir many hearts to seek forgiveness for their sin, and for a relationship with the creator God. At present, few know this is even possible.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Please pray this community will care adequately for those unable to care for themselves, the orphans, the elderly, and the indigent.
