Kumhar (Hindu traditions) in Nepal

The Kumhar are spread throughout South Asia. Even tiny Bhutan has Kumhar people. The term kumhar is derived from the Sanskrit word kumbhkara, meaning a maker of pots. They are largely a landless community and continue to pursue their traditional occupation of pot-making, among other vocations. Some are shifting from red clay to terracotta, painting it with different colors and designs. There are four endogamous (marry within) subgroups, and each subgroup consists of a number of clans. Monogamy is the common practice, but polygyny (one man, more than one wife) is also allowed. Kumhar children usually do not study beyond the secondary school level. They are Hindu and worship Sasthi, Lakshmi, Itu and ancient Vedic deities.

Ministry Obstacles

Spiritual matters are spiritually understood, with the aid of the Lord's Spirit. If the Lord does not reveal himself to the Kumhar people there is little hope they will find him with their own devices. Please pray the Lord will grant understanding to the Kumhar community wherever they live.

Outreach Ideas

Many evangelistic and church planting efforts will be needed to reach the large Kumhar people group with the Gospel. This will require many workers, money, and other resources. Please pray for provision.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are a few Christians among the Kumhar of Nepal, at least some have reported themselves as such to the census. Please pray these Christians will become firmly established in the faith, not doubting like shifting sand.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for the 15,000,000 Kumhar spread across South Asia, that the Lord will bless them with insight into who Jesus truly is, and that they will understand they can know the creator God as their personal savior through faith in Jesus.

Scripture Focus

"For behold, darkness will cover the earth, And deep darkness the peoples; But the Lord will rise upon you, And His glory will appear upon you. And nations will come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising." Isaiah 60:2-3

Kumhar (Tradiciones Hindúes) en Nepal

Los kumhar creen que son descendientes del Señor Brahma (Prajapati). Esta gran grupo étnico tradicionalmente se ganó su sustento a través de la venta de ollas de barro, utensilios y otros productos. De hecho, la palabra "kumhar" significa "alfarero" en varios idiomas de la región.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

Cuando se les invita unirse a la familia de Dios, los Kumhar suelen pensar que eso significa abandonar a su propia familia y a su pueblo.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Los kumhar son accesibles en el mercado, donde los trabajadores externos pueden aplicar el modelo que Jesús dio en Mateo 10 de buscar un hogar receptivo al trabajador y su mensaje.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

No se sabe de creyentes entre los Kumhar, pero seguramente Dios no se ha dejado a sí mismo sin un testimonio entre los millones de Kumhar. Ore para que los Kumhar que conocen a Dios lleguen a ser capaces de sembrar la Palabra de Dios con sabiduría entre sus familias para multiplicar la bendición de Dios a otras familias Kumhares.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore por un movimiento a Jesús para que se propague a través de las familias y comunidades de kumhar.

Texto Bíblico

"Porque he aquí que tinieblas cubrirán la tierra, y oscuridad las naciones; mas sobre ti amanecerá Jehová, y sobre ti será vista su gloria. 3Y andarán las naciones a tu luz, y los reyes al resplandor de tu nacimiento." Isaías 60:2-3
