Stories from Central Asia

'Everyone to everywhere'

When a short-term outreach team finds openness among an unreached people group, their church gets motivated to send more people.

Acceptance and then achievement

“With the helplessness has come the realisation that I’ve been depending on my works a lot,” shares Beth. “It’s great to have tear-jerking stories of all the families our disability project is helping for our newsletters. I like feeling worthwhile because of the difference I am making in somebody’s life. What I do outside of our home has given me worth and significance.”

Pioneering in Central Asia

A small team share stories and spread hope among least-reached Muslims in Central Asia.

Choices and questions

“Did we pray enough? Did we ask the right questions? Did we challenge them enough? Should we have invited them to spend more time with us? Did we fail?” These are some of the questions that OMer Beth wrestles with when a friend marries a non-believer.

Transformational thinking

One OM couple uses Transformation Prayer Ministry to help followers of Jesus in Central Asia find freedom from lies they have believed.

Not lesser, loved

OM workers in Central Asia build relationships with women society scorns, showing them they’re not lesser; they’re loved.
