Kyrgyzstan remains the second poorest country in post-Soviet Central Asia. Unemployment, corruption, inflation, and religious and human-rights violations still plague people’s lives, as it did before the Tulip Revolution. In 2010 a parliamentary constitution with elaborate checks and balances was adopted, making Kyrgyzstan the only Central Asian country in which the president is limited to a single term. Most Kyrgyz are nominal Muslims. Christian Believers were caught in the crossfire of a 2009 law restricting religious activity. The law was meant to prevent the establishment of an Islamic Caliphate; however, suspicions exist that the law was also meant to prevent Muslims from converting to Christianity.

Praise Report
Praise God for a few Christians who have a vision to take the Gospel into the hard to reach mountainous regions (The Bible, Isaiah 12:4).

Prayer Requests
Bride kidnapping continues to be a problem, causing human rights organizations to protest, asking the government to strengthen the legal rights of women and children. Pray that this might take place (The Bible, Isaiah 1:17).
Pray for a strengthening of faith, and peace that passes understanding for the Christian community (The Bible, Psalm 29:11).

Call to Salvation
There are ten people groups in Kyrgyzstan who have no known Christian workers trying to reach them with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pray that God will send out workers into these harvest fields (The Bible, John 3:17).
