Summary
This scheduled tribe is sometimes grouped with the Khampa. They follow Buddhism and worship deities in the form of boulders, caves, trees and bushes. The community is subdivided into clans such as Dolma and Sjerromg or Sherring, which derive their origin from a common ancestor. The mode of disposal of the dead is decided by the lama; it ranges from cremation to throwing the corpse on the hillsides after cutting it into pieces. The traditional occupation has been sheep production, but now they are also engaged in other vocations.

Ministry Obstacles
In spite of being a small people group, they nevertheless speak a large number of languages. This complicates communicating the Gospel to them.

Outreach Ideas
There are good resources available in most of the languages spoken by the Jad, including Gospel recordings and the Story of Jesus audio. These will be helpful if workers take them to the people.

Pray for the followers of Christ
A few people from the Jad community have reported themselves as Christians to the census of India. Please pray the Lord will nurture their faith and give them understanding in how to turn quickly from sin and to trust the Lord for filling from his Spirit.

Pray for the entire people group
Please pray for deliverance for these people from worshipping created objects which have no life in them, which have no capacity to help them with the problems of life or death.
