Building the Church in Central Asia
It is increasingly difficult to spread the gospel in the Central Asian countries of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. Central Asians who express interest in Christianity often risk persecution, and they are more comfortable meeting in homes over a cup of tea than in churches, which are being closed.The majority of believers are first-generation Christians who need discipleship resources in order to grow.
Three of TWR's programs for Central Asia are designed to provide this discipleship: House Church helps Christians to establish their own cell churches by providing worship and Bible teaching. The Christian Home opens listeners' eyes to biblical principles for the family that lead to healthy relationships. And Springs of Living Water encourages young Christians to grow in their faith.
TWR would like to raise $60,000 in the U.S to support Central Asian programs in the coming year.
