Given where Central Eurasia is—mostly the middle East—it probably comes as no surprise to you that there’s a lot of instability in this area.
Our workers and other believers in Central Eurasia face corruption in the government and persecution, and in the midst of all of this several countries in Central Eurasia have been facing changes that have serious implications for believers there.
We’ve been talking a lot about Iran this month, and in the midst of all the revival and discipleship that’s taking place there, our workers have told us that the mosques are emptying of worshipers. But the government is still trying to fill prisons with believers as they crack down on the uncontainable underground church movement.
As exciting as it is to see the gospel spreading throughout this nation, let’s continue to pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters.
Another couple of countries you can be praying for are Turkey and Pakistan.
In Turkey, persecution against Christians is growing, but we’re praying this will shake Turks out of their spiritual apathy and begin to hunger and thirst for what Christ alone can provide.
And in Pakistan, there is growing instability. Like in Iran and Turkey, believers in Pakistan are facing increasing persecution, both from the Orthodox church and radical Islamic groups.
For those of us living in the security of the West, it’s hard to imagine what these brothers and sisters are facing, but they are just that—part of the family of God, just as we are.
Please join us this week in lifting these believers up to the Lord.
Thanks so much for your prayers, and thanks, as always, for being a part of this community. We couldn’t do this without you.
