Uzbek, Northern in Uzbekistan

pronounced: OOZ-bek

The earliest ancestors of the Uzbeks, the Central Asian Turks, aided Genghis Khan in his conquest of eastern Europe in the 1300s. Eventually, as unity between the Turks and Mongols faded, numerous warring kingdoms were formed. It was from several of these kingdoms that the Uzbeks descended.

Ministry Obstacles

Proselytizing is forbidden, and the common practice of winning individuals away to Christ from their families is counterproductive.

Outreach Ideas

Many younger Uzbeks are looking for a belief system to satisfy their deepest spiritual hunger. Pray for workers to sow God's Word into Uzbek families, healing and strengthening households with God's blessing.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray that believers among the Uzbeks will be effective at engaging their families and communities in discussing Bible stories and experiencing God's blessing.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for the families and communities in this large people group to discover and embrace the truth about the Prophet Isa (Jesus), about whom the Koran teaches, and whom the Bible reveals in fullness. Pray the Uzbeks will understand that Jesus desires to bless their families and neighborhoods.

Scripture Focus

"Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done." Psalm 105:1
