Countries Where We
Assist Native Ministries
In most of the countries in the difficult mission field of Eurasia, evangelical believers comprise less than 1 percent of the population. Indigenous, pioneer missionaries travel far distances in these countries to bring the message of Christ to isolated, unreached people groups.
Some of the challenges of missionary work in this region include depressed economies and poor infrastructures, vast distances between rural communities, rough terrain, and political, cultural, and religious ideologies that are closed and hostile to the gospel message.
An indigenous ministry in the closed, landlocked country of Kyrgyzstan is meeting people’s felt needs while sharing the hope of Christ. Ministry workers provided food to poor, mountain communities where many Kyrgyz lost their livelihoods due to COVID-19 lockdowns. The Kyrgyz are nearly 100 percent Muslim; however, ministry workers have already planted several churches among them.
Native missionaries in Russia are reaching nomadic reindeer herders who live near the Arctic Circle in an area translated in their language as “the ends of the earth,” along with several other unreached people groups who are isolated or marginalized like the gypsies. Missionaries are making inroads into their communities through programs for children and youth and by helping to meet their needs for food, medicine, and clothing.

Help Provide Workers’ Monthly Upkeep in Eurasia
In one country where 94 percent of the population is Muslim, children have little chance of hearing the gospel, but native Christian workers reach many kids and their parents through camps, Bible classes and church events.
Help Plant Gospel Seeds in Kyrgyzstan
In the central Asian country that is 0.30 percent evangelical Christian, children have experienced the love of Christ. Local missionaries started working in a new village where kids received gift boxes and heard the gospel for the first time – as did their parents.
Help Spread the Good News in Kyrgyzstan
Local missionaries sponsor various camps for youths that exert a powerful influence on young lives. Muslim parents allow their children to attend such camps, as they see the godly values they learn and how much they enjoy them even as they learn about Christ.
Gospel Reaches Gloomy Corners of Kyrgyzstan
At a Christian youth camp with distant views of snow-capped mountains in the Central Asian country of Kyrgyzstan, nearly 50 nervous children were having a hard time warming up to each other. At more than 5,200 feet above sea level, the camp center was warmer in July than during most of the year, but the kids ages 10 to 14 had arrived cold with gloom about how they were going to get through the week surrounded by strangers. “On the first day when the kids arrived, they were very closed and dissatisfied,” the leader of the native ministry said.
