Introduction / History

The Samma live in Gujarat. They are Sunni Muslims who speak Kachchi and Gujarati and read and write in Gujarati. They are not vegetarians who eat buffalo and camel meat.
They have cousin marriages that are arranged. Marrying again is allowed. They have rituals. On the death of the father, sons and daughters inherit the property.
The Samma work in their traditional work of livestock production. Some work in agriculture. They are not well educated, so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too. They use family planning.
Some of the Samma live in Rajasthan.

Prayer Points

* Pray that God will give the Samma dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
