Kalwar Jaiswal in Nepal

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
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. The Jaiswal are a subgroup of the Kalwar.

What are their lives like?
Today, this people group from Nepal is mostly engaged in farming.

What are their beliefs?
Hinduism is a catch-all phrase for the local religions of South Asia, so very different. At the popular level, Hindus worship and serve the gods of the Hindu pantheon. They visit Hindu temples and offer prayers, food, flowers, and incense to their gods in hopes of gaining protection and benefits. They do not have a personal or familial relationship with their gods like Christians or Jews. There are other Hindus who are much more philosophical, especially among the Brahmins.

What are their needs?
Although the New Testament, Bible portions, audio, and the JESUS Film exist in Maithali language of this people group, they remain unreached with the gospel. Who will tell them?

Prayer Points
Pray that God will bring the attention of the Jaiswal Kalwar people to these resources. Pray that they will start family-based Bible studies and ultimately a disciple-making movement among all Kalwar communities. Pray that Jaiswal Kalwar people will become curious about being born again of the Holy Spirit, and that they would truly encounter Christ, their savior.
