Introduction / History

The name Ghirath refers to the traditional occupation of agriculture and animal husbandry, for which this community is well known.

What Are Their Lives Like?

Marriage rituals are performed by a Brahmin according to Vedic rites, and the bride and groom circle the sacred fire or a pomegranate or fig tree.

What Are Their Needs?

The Ghirath community speaks a number of languages, as most castes do. Separate church planting projects may be needed for each language group. Workers are needed to minister to these people using oral means as well as with the written word.

Prayer Points

Pray for Ghirath believers, that they will understand clearly how to follow Christ and be faithful in discipling others.

Pray the Ghirath community will be able to care properly for their families, for peace with their neighbors, and for good schools for their children.

Pray for spiritual openness to the ways of Christ, especially among Ghirath leaders.
