- Southern Uzbek people: Afghanistan
Afghanistan [2010-03-17] —
According to Joshua Project, the 1,811,000 Uzbeks come from a predominantly Sunni Muslim background, usually of the Hanafi school. They are descended to a large degree from Turk-Mongol invaders. Genuine friendship is important to them. Christians would do well to befriend them. Pray for the believers among the Uzbek, that they will grow in faith and in knowledge of the Lord. Pray the Uzbeks will increasingly see Isa (Jesus) as the anointed Son of God, and will hunger to find out more about Him. There is no Bible in their language, but the JESUS Film and audio recordings exist.
