[2024 Ramadan] Day 7 The Secret Weapon of the Kingdom of God, Turkmenistan


Turkmenistan is so valiant that it is nicknamed ‘Turkmen Turks’. The Seljuk Empire, which served as mercenaries for the Arab Abbasid dynasty, is the Turkmen people. In addition, the 1000-mile horse, which is said to run a thousand miles without stopping, and the single-blooded horse, which is said to sweat like blood, are Turkmen national horses. The bravery of the people can be seen through their horses.


Turkmenistan is located in Central Asia, with Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan to the north and Iran and Afghanistan to the south. The area is five times that of South Korea, and the population is about 6 million. Majority of the people are of Turkmen ethnicity. Other ethnic groups include Uzbek and Russian. The religion is mostly Islam.


Turkmenistan is a powerful dictatorship also known as the North Korea of ​​Central Asia. The first president's dictatorship was thwarted by a sudden heart attack, but the second president built a stronger dictatorship and eventually passed it on to his son. The current president continues to implement a closed policy to continue this dictatorship. Long-term ministers were continuously expelled, and during the coronavirus pandemic, borders were not open for three years, so short-term ministers were unable to enter either.


And at the seventh time, when the priests had blown the trumpets, Joshua said to the people, "Shout, for the LORD has given you the city. (Joshua 6:16).

However God is at work in Turkmenistan. The border gates that had been closed for three years were wide open, and numerous short-term ministers entered. They were welcomed wherever they walked, and countless people believed in Jesus. Additionally, local Turkmen Christians are on the move. Last autumn, a church leader participated in the Central Asia Pastors' Meeting. He also attended a local Christian gathering in Central Asia during this Ramadan. Hallelujah!


God is at work in the Turkmen land. We believe that God will open this land wide and allow them to work as warriors of Christ among all nations.


 [Today’s prayer]

 1. Lord! Please help the Turkmen church rise up with the gospel and become warriors of Christ awakening countless nations.


 2. Please open the way for long-term ministers to enter Turkmenistan. Let long-term ministers enter this land who will awaken many Christians and spread the gospel to unbelievers.
