1. Uzbekistan has one of the worst records in the world for religious freedom. The government particularly targets dynamic and evangelistic churches, making it impossible for them to officially register. Telling people about God could result in three years in prison and opening an unregistered Christian group would result in five years. Pray that God would give Christians strength and perseverance in the face of persecution.
2. Phone calls or e-mails sent by missionaries and church leaders are not secured.
3. A few Christians are concentrated in Tashkent, the capital city, and most of them are Russians or
Koryo-saram. Let us pray for the evangelization of Uzbeks.
