Introduction / History

The Azeris or Azerbaijanis live in Igdir where they are the largest people group and also live in Kars where they are the second largest group. They originate from the country of Azerbaijan. They speak Azerbaijani and Turkish. Shia Islam is the main religion they have.

The Azeris grew in numbers in Turkey in the first half of the 1900's. More came to Turkey in the first half of the twentieth century. From the early 1990s many more came to Turkey for financial reasons.

The Azeris are at home generally in Turkish society but there are differences with regards religious views with most of them being Shia Muslims.


Prayer Points

* Pray that God will give the Azeri dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that as they read the Koran they will be attracted to Jesus Christ, read about Him in the Bible and come to Salvation too.
