Testimonies from CENTRAL ASIA
The peace of God
“I had problems with my heart for a long time. My rhythm wasn’t stable and it made me feel like he could stop at any time of the day. I was very afraid of dying, especially because I didn’t know what would happen to my children. It kept me awake at night. When I saw a message on social media, I contacted you. We met and you prayed with me. I immediately felt different! My heart problems are gone. I’m so happy! My heart is back in the right place, thanks to your prayer.” Jennbat – Central Asia.
Our Christian content addresses social issues such as domestic violence, conflict resolution, reconciliation, and intergenerational relationships. Women in Central Asia comprise a large proportion of respondents who actively seek guidance pertaining to these topics, with a key area of concern for them being that women in their society are undervalued. These women profess their reliance on our partner’s ministry continuing to create content that helps to change the stereotypical views of women as weak and incapable of supporting themselves.
