Lodha (Hindu traditions) in Nepal

The Lodha are an agricultural community. Besides cultivation, they raise cattle, work as agricultural laborers and make ropes. Some claim their descent from Lav, the son of Lord Rama. In some areas, the girls are tattooed at an early age on the chin and forehand. The Lodha are moderately educated.

Ministry Obstacles

Nominal Christianity may have caused these people to have a misunderstanding as to what it means to follow Christ.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for workers to take the Gospel message to these people in both oral and written form.

Scripture Focus

"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth."  Genesis 1:1

Scripture Prayer

Pray that this people group will be in awe of the Lord for His creation and realize that He is the only one worthy of worship and devotion.

Prayer Focus

Pray for the few followers of Christ among the Lodha community, that they will be united in love around truth, growing in numbers and in maturity. Pray they will put on the full armor of God, including the shield of faith. Pray that a strong movement to Jesus will bring whole Lodha families and clans into a rich experience of God's blessings. Pray they will be able to provide well for their families, with adequate food, shelter, and opportunities for schooling for their children.
