Northern Uzbek in China

Northern Uzbek in China

Uzbek history in China dates back to the time of the Mongol hordes who dominated Central Asia and China in the thirteenth century. The Uzbeks in China are descended from traders who traveled along the Silk Road. The name Uzbek probably came from Ozbeg Khan, a Mongol ruler of the Golden Horde who spread Islam throughout many parts of the empire in the fourteenth century. Those who remained in the area under Ozbeg Khan's rule became known as Uzbeks.

Ministry Obstacles

The Uzbeks are not open to outside spiritual input. They need the power of the Holy Spirit to intervene in their families.

Outreach Ideas

There are a few Uzbek Christians in China today, which is significant considering the strength of Islam among them. These few followers of Christ can reach out to others.

Scripture Focus

"Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you."  Psalm 63:3

Scripture Prayer

May many from this people group understand this and act upon it.

Prayer Focus

Pray for Uzbek believers to allow the Holy Spirit to permeate all aspects of their lives. Pray they would be obedient when the Lord tells them to go. Pray for the authority of Christ to bind hindering spiritual forces to lead them from darkness to light. Pray for signs and wonders to happen among them and for great breakthroughs with a rapid multiplication of disciples and house churches.
