Gujarati in Iran

There are significant Gujarati communities in 27 nations of the world, and that includes Iran. Wherever they are, whether it is their native India or Iran, Gujaratis have maintained their own culture. They are resourceful businessmen. Muslim Gujarati women are required to wear veils, and they are often isolated in their homes. Muslim Gujarati families usually arrange marriages as a way to strengthen alliances between families. Gujarati Muslims often despise the Gujarati Hindus because of historical and religious differences.

Ministry Obstacles

Close families and clans make it difficult to penetrate their cultural and social structure. Women are particularly hard to reach with their restrictive and isolated lifestyle.

Outreach Ideas

Since the Gujarati men are mainly involved in trade and stores, they should be much easier to reach for Christ. Business-minded believers will probably be the best ones to befriend Gujarati businessmen and introduce them to the Savior.

Scripture Focus

"From new moon to new moon, and from Sabbath to Sabbath, all flesh shall come to worship before me, declares the LORD."  Isaiah 66:23

Scripture Prayer

Pray that soon all mankind will bow in humble submission to the Lord Almighty.

Prayer Focus

Pray for God to put it on the heart of Christ-following businessmen to befriend Gujarati businessmen and lead them to his abundant blessings. Pray for God to open the door of opportunity for Christian women to get to know Gujarati women, invite them to their homes and show them the way to his abundant life. Pray for radio broadcasts for Gujarati-speaking women.
