Chhipa (Sikh traditions) in India

A Chhipa can be a Sikh, Hindu or a Muslim. Confusing? We can only imagine the spiritual confusion caused by three major religions within one people group. The word "Chhipa" means to print, and their main occupations deal with dyeing and printing fabrics in red, blue and black patterns. The Chhipa live mainly in northwestern India in the states of Rajasthan and Gujarat, and speak Urdu, Hindi and various local dialects. They favor marriages between cousins.

Ministry Obstacles

The three different religions within this people group are a huge obstacle. Do Christian workers present a fourth religion that would add more confusion? Presenting the gospel message in a way that will touch their hearts and introduce them to their true Savior who died for them will be a challenge.

Outreach Ideas

Christian workers can share Bible stories, the JESUS Film, and other visual stories with children and their parents.

Scripture Focus

"If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, You shall love your neighbor as yourself, you are doing well."  James 2:8

Scripture Prayer

Pray for today’s people group to obey God’s law and love their neighbor as themselves.

Prayer Focus

Pray that the Chhipa people would see the futility of their conflicting religions and seek and find the only savior. Pray for the Holy Spirit to anoint Chhipa families, especially the children and the youth, and to raise up a new generation of fruitful, multiplying witnesses of Jesus Christ's mercy and love.
