In recent years, READ Ministries has found new ministry opportunities in the five Central Asian republics. Because Islam is dominant in each of these republics and several are entirely opposed to the Christian faith, this is a dangerous place to be a follower of Jesus Christ and for outsiders who seek to assist and support them.
Despite the harsh resistance to Christianity, the church in this region is growing by leaps and bounds—and the most persecuted areas are growing the fastest. But for them to grow in faith and knowledge, they need our help. Central Asian church leaders need of resources to teach and grow these amazingly brave Christian people who want to pursue worshiping the God of the Bible and not the Muslim faith.
