Introduction / History

The Moghia are a scheduled caste of Madhya Pradesh. They speak Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. They are not vegetarians but do not eat beef.

The Moghia have clans who look after marriages. Women inherit their dead husbands property. They are on the same level as men and help with the work.

The Moghia do basket work and make brooms and mats from leaves that they get from the forest. They sell the baskets in the markets. Some of them work as laborers.

Hinduism is their religion. Their education level is low, so the gospel message will need to be given in oral form.

Prayer Points

* Pray that Indian Christians will lead them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
