Kazakh in Kazakhstan

Kazakhs are descendants of Turkic tribes, Mongol groups, and Indo-Iranian tribes, which populated the territory between Siberia and the Black Sea. Due to their nomadic pastoral lifestyle, Kazakhs kept an epic tradition of oral history. They had to develop phenomenal memories in order to keep an account of their history. The nation, which amalgamated nomadic tribes of various Kazakh origins, managed to preserve the distant memory of the original founding clans.

Ministry Obstacles

The Kazakhs have a long history of commitment to follow the ways of Islam.

Outreach Ideas

The Kazakh reside in many countries, some of which are open to Christian workers.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray that strong movements to Jesus will bring whole families into rich experiences of God's blessings. Pray for the followers of Jesus among the Kazakh community, that they will fellowship together and be united around the truth of Scripture.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Kazakhs will increasingly be open to hearing more fully who Jesus is, that they will become hungry to know him.

Scripture Focus

"Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You." Psalm 67:3
