North Caucasus Bible Translation Projects

Translate God’s Word for the more than forty different Muslim minority people groups in the North Caucasus Region, each of whom has a unique native language.
Muslim peoples often assume that the Bible is not for them because it is not available in their native language. This project will dispel that myth by translating the Word of God into their heart language and then placing it into their hands through various distribution channels. Your gift will underwrite translation projects in these minority languages to help people gain access to God’s Word in their native tongue.

Furthermore, your generosity will help get rich theological resources into the hands of the fledging churches in the region. These churches are prone to theological heterodoxy because of broad access to false teachers on YouTube. Getting quality materials into their hands helps to safeguard their faith.

Location

Central Asian Peoples

From the mountain peaks of the Caucasus to the steppes of Kazakhstan, the heartland of Asia is a place of mystery, having been mostly off-limits to travelers for the last 2000 years. With its blue-domed cities, frenetic bazaars, and remote yurts, Central Asia captures the romance of the Silk Road. Ancient traditions, loyal relationships, and generous hospitality make up the foundation of Central Asian values. Once home to the early church, Islam is now the predominant religion of Central Asia. Architecture, dress, and cultural expectations are all marked by it's influence.

Political, religious, and cultural divisions have fractured Central Asia's governments and global relations. This instability has left people seeking an anchor for hope and peace. Jesus is their peace, but most of Central Asia's 365 million people have no knowledge of the gospel.

Pray that as Central Asians will meet the life-giver and Prince of Peace so they can experience the abundant joy that Jesus offers.
