The Khati or Jangra are a Brahmin people who live in west central India. The Brahmins are the highest caste in Hinduism. The traditional role of the Khati in Indian history and society was that of engineering and construction. The Khati designed the palaces and temples of west Indian states of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. They would make the blueprints and supervise the construction by lower castes. Today the Khati have careers in fields like architecture, engineering, computer science and technology. The main language of the Khati is Hindi. They also speak other Indian regional languages as well as English.
The prestige and status of the Khati could be an obstacle in their humbly coming to Christ.
Bibles, literature and radio programs are available in Hindi. Khati students studying in the west may be open to hearing about the claims of Christ.
O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, what joy for those who trust in you. Ps 84:12
Pray for many from this people group to find joy and hope in trusting the Lord Almighty.
There may be no believers among the Khati at the present time. Pray that the Lord opens their hearts to the gospel soon. * Pray that a strong movement to Jesus will bring whole Khati families and communities into a rich experience of God's blessings. * Pray for the Holy Spirit to give the Khati people love for God's Word that will lead many of them into Bible studies and discipleship groups.
