Kyrgyzstan became independent from USSR in 1991. They have struggled to stabilize since then and are still very poor. They have had a tragic history over the years from Christians who slaughtered their ancestors to imposed Islam and Communism. There are still government restrictions and scrutiny on religious groups. The majority is Muslim with about 5% Christian.
Pray for the local churches, the unity of Christians there, and for resources that show them the truth that God’s love has for them.
