The K people of the Silk Road Area
Living among the K people
“God is at work in spite of our earthly limitations. This year He has turned our local English teachers towards Jesus, through Bible storytelling. And a new faith community has emerged in the face of many obstacles. Exciting times ahead on the Silk Road!” — Eliza, Team Leader
The K people are very community focused, often opening up their homes to offer hospitality to family and friends and being involved in community events and festivals. Being Muslim is also key to the K people’s cultural identity and there is a general resistance towards western expressions of Christianity. There are very few K people who are following Jesus in distinctly K ways.
With thanks to Australian Baptists sowing into projects, the English Teaching and Community Centre among the K people is thriving. Having a population proficient in English is a national developmental goal identified by the local government. The centre has been embraced by the broader community and the demand for lessons is great. Our team is also building relationships with marginalised people in the community through allied health opportunities and a workshop. As our team teaches students, connects with parents and supports families, relationships naturally develop, conversations occur and seeds are being sown!
