Young professionals are helping to advance the gospel in Central Asia despite strict prohibitions against religion.
CBN News reports that life is challenging for Christians in the five â€œstansâ€� of central Asia: Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan.
These countries are now free from Soviet rule, but the totalitarianism from the Communist age, as well as the growth of Islamic extremism is a threat to those who profess faith.
Leaders in these countries have enacted laws prohibiting religious expression. These laws are ostensibly directed toward Muslims, but Christians often end up facing brunt of these laws.
“When the authorities discover someone has converted to Christianity, they will gather relatives, friends and family of the accused and bring him or her before an Islamic Council of Elders,” said Maksim who lives in Tajikistan. “The convert then stands before the group and has to decide between faith or family.”
