Yagnob, Yagnobi in Tajikistan

The Yagnobi people are an ethnic minority in Tajikistan. The Soviet Union forced resettlement in 1957 and 1970 from the Yagnob mountains to the semi-desert lowlands of Tajikistan. Red Army helicopters were sent to evacuate the population. Some Yagnobians died of shock in helicopters as they were moved to the plains. Yagnobians were forced into hard labor by Communist officials to work on the cotton plantations on the plains. Yagnobian ethnicity was officially abolished by the Soviet State. Through the change in climate and back-breaking work, several hundred Yagnobians died. Since 1983, families have begun to return to the Yagnob Valley.

Ministry Obstacles

There are no known Christian resources available in the Yagnobi language.

Outreach Ideas

Many of the Yagnobi people, especially the younger ones, speak the Tajiki language. There are many resources available in this language. Workers are needed to carry these resources to the Yagnogi people who speak Tajiki.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are probably no followers of Jesus among the Yagnobi tribe. But pray for those the Lord will soon call to himself, that they won't be ashamed of the Gospel, believing it is the power of God unto salvation.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Yagnobi will once again be able to flourish as they did before the Communists came. Pray for good schools, for adequate medical facilities, and employment opportunities.

Scripture Focus

"Now go out to the street corners and invite everyone you see." Matthew 22:9
