Khalpa in India

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The name Khalpa is derived from the word khal, meaning skin. The traditional occupations of the Khalpa are skinning cattle and working as laborers.

What are their lives like?
Today, many are employed in other jobs related to farming and livestock production. Some repair musical instruments which are played in the temples during worship. They use their community name or "Rohit" as their surname.

What are their beliefs?
The different clans have their own clan deities, Khodiarma, Bahuchara, and so on.

What are their needs?
This community lives in the state of Gujarat, a focal point for religious tensions and persecution. They need the chance to accept or reject Christ without outside interference.

Perhaps workers who are seeking to take the gospel to every home in India will be successful in reaching the homes of the Khalpa people group.

Prayer Points
Please pray that those who come to Jesus in faith from this community will live holy lives, honoring the Lord in all they say and do.

Pray that a clean water supply and adequate medical care will be available for this low caste community.

Pray for God to shed his blessings on them in such a way they will want the kingdom of God.

Pray for loving workers.
