Srigaud Brahmin in India

The Srigaud Brahmins are almost exclusively Hindu, a truly unreached group! They value education and supporting their elderly. Their lives as Brahmins center around duty to gods, ancestors, life, to the Hindu communities they serve and the Hindu scriptures. To them, each of these is an important sacred duty. Many are well-educated and employed accordingly. Most Srigaud Brahmin families prefer to be employed in challenging professions such as computer software engineering than being a priest.

Ministry Obstacles
Because Brahmins see themselves a "twice born" and at the top of the caste order and often well off, they may not see the need for salvation in Christ. They also know few if any from any Brahmin community who follows Christ.

Outreach Ideas
They could watch the JESUS Film and discuss it afterwards. Others can hear and interface with both the Hindu and Christian scriptures.

Scripture Focus
"We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain,"  Hebrews 6:19

Scripture Prayer
Pray that the Spirit leads this people group to hope in Christ and that He becomes the trustworthy anchor of their souls.

Prayer Focus
Pray that the Church in South India would reach out to the Srigaud Brahmin comunity. Pray that the Srigaud Brahmin community would become dissatisfied with their current situation and begin to seek answers to their questions in the teachings of Jesus Christ. Pray for spiritual hunger among these Brahmins that will result in a movement to Christ.
