Trata de personas en Asia Central

Trabajadores de OM en Asia Central forman relaciones con mujeres que la sociedad desprecia, mostrando que no son menos; son amadas.

Leaving a legacy

“I love hearing from the local people here about the workers that have gone before us who have now returned to their passport countries,” shares Beth. “I hear stories like: ‘She taught me to quilt’ or ‘She gave me this recipe’ or ‘She taught me how to set a table for foreigners.’ And, of course, the best stories begin: ‘She taught me about Jesus.’ These are the things those who have gone before us have left behind.”

¿Por qué nadie nos lo ha dicho antes?

Después de años de vivir entre un grupo apartado de personas no alcanzadas, los obreros de OM ven a Dios atraer a los primeros creyentes locales a sí mismos.

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.

When did this place become home?

“If I am completely honest, I think I spent our first two years in Central Asia longing to go home to our home country (or even to the USA where we had lived for a short while),” admits Beth. “I would pray: Your will God but deep down I was hoping that His will was that we wouldn’t be here long.”

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.
