Varendra Brahmin in India
pronounced: vah-REN-drah BRAH-min

Varendra Brahman families value higher education. Towards this end, there is a new university in the Varendra region that straddles West Bengal and Bangladesh established in 2012.

Ministry Obstacles: Like other Brahman peoples, the Varendras feel that turning their allegiance to another religious system will jeopardize their status. For this reason, they are very reluctant to give their allegiance to Jesus Christ, believing this is tantamount to joining a different religious system.

Outreach Ideas: If someone made close friends with leaders of the Varendra Brahman community and led them to understand the unfathomable glories of Christ, they might be able to find ways to worship him that conform to their culture and don't conflict with the Bible.

Scripture Focus: "And many peoples shall come, and say: Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob, that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths. For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem."
- Isaiah 2:3

Prayer Focus Pray for a heart-felt seeking of the Lord among many from today’s people group. Pray that the Holy Spirit would raise up believers who will actively introduce the Varendra Brahmans to Christ and help them to worship him in culturally appropriate ways. Pray for Christ to reveal himself to Varendra Brahman leaders. Pray for a Disciple Making Movement to emerge among every Brahman community.
