(Kazakhstan) — Christians in Kazakhstan need prayer as they attempt to reach the lost with the Gospel in that Central Asian nation. Doctor David Shibley of Global Advance just completed a Frontline Shepherds conference there. He says the pastors are ready to see the evangelical church grow. “82 cities were represented. Pastors came from neighboring Uzbekistan and also from the Republic of Russia. They went away with a real vision particularly for planting (churches) among unreached peoples and they have targeted two unreached people groups. The Kakakhs and the Uigurs.” Shibley says evangelizing Kazakhstan is important. “Kazakhstan represents one of the open doors to the Islamic world. There has been at least a measure of freedom from churches to operate. I believe it’s a tremendous time for us to see the Gospel advance throughout that nation and also to use the churches of that nation as a base for the advance of the Gospel throughout the Islamic world.”
