The Hindu Rajput Bhatti live primarily in northern India. They claim to be descendants of Yadu, the founder of the Yadava dynasty who ruled a kingdom for 500 years in central India. The Bhatti are proud of their military traditions. They often served as feudal lords and ruled over land areas. The Rajput Bhatti are also known for building Hindu temples and large mansions that tourists can see today. Indian independence from Britain in 1947 brought major changes to the Bhatti. Many still serve as officers and soldiers in the Indian Army. Many others have gone into occupations in administration, science, medicine, government, journalism, banking and trade. Today many Bhatti still own land and work as farmers and employ other lower castes as laborers.
The Rajput Bhatti are some of India's most devout Hindus. When people are devoted to a religious system, it is difficult for them to seek and find the true Savior.
Believers who love history can befriend the Bhatti Rajputs and hear about what their ancestors did in ancient India. When the time is right, they can share about the acts of the King of kings.
There are no followers of Christ among these devout Hindus. Pray that the Lord will speak to the hearts of any who know they are spiritually poor and need a Savior.
* Pray for spiritual hunger among the Hindu Bhatti Rajputs. * Pray for a great harvest to begin among the Bhatia people, and for many to become missionaries throughout the highly unreached parts of northern India. * Pray for a strong community of believers to rise up amongst the Bhatia that will begin a disciple-making movement.
"How then shall they call upon Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?" Romans 10:14-15
