Karan Kayastha in India

Unreached of the Day  1/24/2021

Karan Kayastha in India

The Kayashta Karan people are among the great scholars of eastern India and Nepal. Traditionally they were the well-educated scribes and administrators. Today many are land-owners. They have high status.

Ministry Obstacles

Very few people in their community have given Jesus the chance to be their Lord and Savior. They live in a part of the world that is almost entirely Hindu or Muslim.

Outreach Ideas

Few are willing to accept ideas or spiritual input from those from the lower ranks, especially in South Asia where status is very important. It will take well-educated people from other parts of the world to reach the Kayastha Karan people.

Scripture Focus

"As soon as Solomon finished his prayer, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the LORD filled the temple. And the priests could not enter the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD filled the LORD’s house."  2 Chronicles 7:1-2

Scripture Prayer

Pray for today’s people group to be in absolute awe of the Lord when they hear of His glorious presence.

Prayer Focus

Pray for the Holy Spirit to penetrate the hearts of Kayastha Karan elders so that they in turn can open the spiritual doors for others to follow Jesus. Pray for them to be blessed spiritually and materially when they decide to allow Jesus to be a major part of their community. Pray for Kayastha Karan leaders to begin the process of starting a church planting movement.
