Living among the H people

“Give thanks that God opened the way for our return to Central Asia. It’s a privilege to be back living amongst the H people and experiencing their warm hospitality and generosity once again. Please pray for both wisdom and courage as we continue to build relationships and seek to share and show the Good News in meaningful and appropriate ways.”  — Pete, Team Leader

The H people are naturally inquisitive and many are searching for meaning to their lives. More than 95% are Muslim and 0.01% are known to follow Jesus. Food, socialising and hospitality are important cultural activities for H people. They are known to be entrepreneurial with many families running businesses in the hospitality industry.

In recent years, the team’s primary involvement with H people has been through teaching English, learning the local language at university and contributing to a local agricultural project. They are investigating other avenues for meaningful, long-term engagement with H people. There are many opportunities and many people are spiritually searching.
