Kazakhstan is a country the size of Western Europe, with rich reserves of oil, uranium and other minerals, but where only a few enjoy the wealth. There is a notionally Christian Russian minority but it is said that to be Kazakh is to be Muslim. Many Islamic missionaries have been sent to this country, but the first Kazakh churches have been established, despite the pressures. Pray for Christians to stand firm and to reach the many minorities who have not yet heard the gospel.
PRAYER POINTS (Prayercast)
• Pray for Kazakh Christians to seize opportunities to evangelize Central Asian immigrants.
• Pray for heads of families to place their hope in Christ instead of in shamanistic practices
• Pray for well-trained, godly leaders despite most Bible schools and seminaries being closed.
