We are passionate about seeing Vibrant Communities of Jesus Followers (VCJFs) among the Least Reached in Tajikistan.
As a field we long to see a movement of culturally relevant, lay led, heart language, multiplying fellowships among the Central Asians of this land. Already we are encouraged to see second generations of communities of Jesus followers but we long for more Central Asians to gather and worship Jesus. These peoples are hospitable, love music, dance and dance.

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