Stories from Central Asia

Every last apricot

“We were strangers, and they called us over to bless us. They didn’t have to give us anything—let alone everything—but they did it with smiles on their faces. They didn’t know us; they didn’t expect anything in return; they just gave,” remembers Nicole.

Discipleship on a daily basis

God uses OMers to show His love to local believers, who then spread that love to their own communities.

Celebrate the Light

“Christmas is about Jesus and celebrating His birth, and I’m realising each year that it doesn’t really matter if we’re eating roast chicken or horse meat or whether we’re with special family or up on stage singing. It’s a joy to celebrate the Light coming into the world,” shares Beth.

Living as salt and light

Workers in Central Asia walk alongside local believers and share small bits of truth with those they live among.

First fruit in the mountains

After years of living among a remote unreached people group, OMers see God draw the first local believers to Himself.

'Everyone to everywhere'

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