Traditionally the Jhinwar peoples have been associated with boating, fishing and carrying water. Others milled grain for a living. Recently, they have entered stone-cutting, agriculture, and the road-building professions. The Jhinwar people have low status in this South Asian country where caste is very important.
Muslims usually don't distinguish between following Jesus Christ and turning their backs on their families and communities. Whoever goes to them needs to remember that they are to take Christ to them; not try to get them to join a "foreign" community as represented by a church building.
It will take people who are willing to spend years as Christ's ambassadors to win the Muslim Jhinwar people to Jesus' side.
There are no followers of Christ among the Muslim Jhinwar people, so pray that the Holy Spirit begins to break through in this hard soil. * Pray that God's Holy Spirit will open new doors in hearts to positive change among the Jhinwar people. * Pray for Jhinwar Muslims to have a Holy Spirit driven hunger for spiritual truth that will drive them to the Lord. * Pray for the Lord to thrust out new workers who will lovingly stick with these people until they have a church planting movement. * Pray for a disciple-making movement to sweep through Muslim Jhinwar communities.
Therefore I will teach them—this time I will teach them my power and might. Then they will know that my name is the Lord. Jer 16:21
