Introduction / History

The Jakkula people live in Andhra Pradesh. They speak, read and write in Telugu.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Jakkula work mostly in cultivation. Some of them are goldsmiths. They are good at craftsman work such as carving and modelling. But today many are rising above these common jobs and you can find many of them on LinkedIn who are in the business world, working as software engineers or medical doctors. The Jakkula prefer marriages between cousins. On the death of the father, only males receive the inheritance.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Hinduism is their religion. Unlike most Hindus, the Jakkula people bury their dead.


What Are Their Needs?

The Jakkula people need the abundant life that only Jesus offers.


Prayer Points

Pray that Indian believers help them to begin a movement to Jesus Christ. Pray that gospel materials become easily available to them. Pray for intercessors and workers. Pray for spiritual discernment and openness to the gospel.
