Introduction

The Jaiswal Kalwar are a Hindu people who live in central India. The name Jaiswal comes from a district in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh where this people originated. They were traditionally involved in the distillation and sale of liquor. Since the alcohol business was considered degrading by many Hindus and Muslims, the Jaiswal Kalwar became active in other occupations like politics, trade, education, agriculture, law enforcement and the military. Some are of Jaiswal practice Jainism. Hindu nationalists consider Jainism to be a subset of Hinduism. The primary language of the Kalwar is Hindi.


Ministry Obstacles

When Jaiswal become believers in Christ, their families may shun them. They may lose income in their businesses by following Christ.


Outreach Ideas

Bibles, literature and radio programs exist in Hindi. Hindu background believers can share with the Jaiswal the blessings of knowing God through Christ.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There may be no believers among the Jaiswal people. Pray that God causes many to be born again and brought into the kingdom of God.


Pray for the Entire People Group

* Pray the Lord will start a movement of Jaiswal families experiencing God's blessings, spiritually and economically.
* Pray for Jaiswal families and communities to discover and embrace the free gift of life found by trusting Christ and his finished work.
* Pray that many of the Jaiswal people will come to love God with their whole being and will walk in His ways.
