Introduction / History

The Sondhia live in Rajasthan in India in the Sondhwad region. They speak in Sondhwadi and read and write in Devanagari. Farming is their main source of work.

The Sondhia are not vegetarians but they do not eat beef or pork. Jowar is their main cereal and milk is their favorite drink. Many men smoke tobacco and bidi.

The Sondhia have exogamous clans who arrange marriages. The clan of the brother of the mother is excluded in marriages.

The Sondhia are Hindus. They are looked on as a backward caste. Although farming is their main work, some are now urbanised. - from wikipedia.


Prayer Points

* Pray that being a lower caste causes them to seek the love of Jesus Christ and give their lives to Him.
* Pray that gospel recordings and dreams and visions bring them to Jesus Christ.
