Meskhetian Turk in Kazakhstan


Meskhetian Turk in Kazakhstan

Meskhetian Turks arrived in Kazakhstan in 1944. They live in closely knit rural communities that are largely integrated into Kazakh society. Turkish businesspeople are investing in this country, and Meskhetian Turks act as a bridge between Turkish and Kazakh businessmen.

Ministry Obstacles

Lack of prayer and lack of obedience to the command of Christ to preach the good news to all creation continue to slow the advance of the gospel among Muslim Meskhetian Turks in Kazakhstan and elsewhere.

Outreach Ideas

Georgia has many Christians, mostly Orthodox, but some are evangelicals. They have the potential to be ambassadors for Christ among the Muslim people groups in nearby Kazakhstan.

Scripture Focus

"And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, ‘As the LORD lives,’ even as they taught my people to swear by Baal, then they shall be built up in the midst of my people."  Jeremiah 12:16

Scripture Prayer

Pray for today’s people to become well established in their devotion to the Lord alone.

Prayer Focus

Pray the Lord would awaken an interest among Meskhetian Turks to know Jesus personally. Pray for tribal leaders and family heads to understand their need for the one true God as their sin-bearer, and that this realization would filter down through families. Pray for the Lord to bless the Meskhetian Turks in such a way they will know of his goodness and power.
