Introduction / History

Kazakh Americans have complete or partial Kazakh ancestry. Kazakhs migrated to the United States after World War II. Many Kazakhs have married non-Kazakhs. Since the ending of the Soviet Union, more Kazakhs have come to live in America. Some are engineers and scientists.
Kazakhs have also come from Turkey and China. Kazakh orphans have also been adopted in America.


What Are Their Lives Like?

There are Kazakh Associations in America dealing with cultural and other needs of the Kazakh people living in the country. The Kazakhs speak Kazakh, Russian and English. Because of their nomadic past, Kazakhs kept an epic tradition of oral history.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Kazakhs in the US identify themselves as Sunni Muslims or atheists. They usually fast in month of Ramadan. During the Kazakh funerals and Friday prayers their Koran recitations end with imams dedicating the prayers to the people who perished in the long journey, and called them shehits, religious martyrs.


What Are Their Needs?

The Kazakhs in the United States have the chance to hear and respond to the gospel. They need Christ followers who are willing to go to them.


Prayer Points

Pray for God to raise up Christ followers who will share the savior with the Kazakhs in America.
Pray that God will give the Kazakh Muslims dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
Pray that God will show Kazakhs that Jesus Christ is real and is who He says He is.
