Singpho in India

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The Singpho of India live in Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and also in Megalhaya where there are a small number of Christians. They have several clans and are governed by chiefs.

In Arunachal Pradesh the Singpho live in Lohit and Changlang. In Assam they live in the Tinsukia district. They are exogamous (meaning that they do not prohibit marriages outside their group) and have cross-cousin marriages. Buddhism is their religion and they sacrifice buffaloes and other animals. They drink rice beer from boiled roots. They drink tea too.

The Singpho believe in a fall from grace but that it was because of bathing in forbidden water and that caused them to become mortal.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the Singpho are shown in Genesis how the fall from grace took place and that they believe it and come to salvation.
* Pray that the Singpho chiefs come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
