Introduction

The Kamboh or Kamboj are a Hindu and Sikh people who live in northwest India. They claim to be descendants of royalty from Persia. During the times of the Mughuls and British, the Kamboh served in high-ranking positions in administration and in the military. Today many Kamboh own land that is worked by lower castes. The Kamboh are employed in careers of government, education, law, business, and the military. The primary language of the Kamboh is Hindi. They also speak English and regional Indian languages.

Ministry Obstacles

The Kamboh occupy a high place in Indian society. Their pride, wealth and position may prevent them from humbly coming to Christ.

Outreach Ideas

Bibles, literature, films and radio programs exist in Hindi. Hindu background believers can share with the Kamboh the blessings only found in Christ.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray that any existing Kamboh believers might increase in numbers and that all Kamboh would have the opportunity to hear the gospel in a way they both understand and will accept.

Pray for the Entire People Group

* Pray that the Kamboh leaders will come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray for Kamboh families to be drawn to Jesus and to the Bible to find out more about Him.
* Pray the Kamboh people will understand that Jesus desires to bless their families and communities, not harm them.
