Uzbek (Northern) in Uzbekistan
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.
Proselytizing is forbidden, and the common practice of winning individuals away to Christ away from their families is counterproductive.
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.
