South Asian Unengaged Peoples

The Thavi is a lesser-known and smaller community in India. They construct buildings, including houses and temples, and are stone workers known currently for preparing various household articles and in the past for making sculptures. They like to be identified as Rajput instead of Thavi, as the name distances them and points to an inferior social position. The Thavi have small clans used for the regulation of matrimonial alliances. Pray that the Thavi will come to know Jesus as the cornerstone of their faith, “a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; the one who believes will be unshakable” (Isaiah 28:16 CSB).
