In November, the a team of Christian Brothers, in cooperation with the local church, held a three-week School of Christ in Kyrgyzstan. We had 15 pastors and missionaries that attended the School full-time. We were asked by the church to run the SOC to equip, encourage, instruct, and train their ministers in the Central Asian region.
Immediately following the School, the SOC Team held a time of fasting and prayer that was organized by a local church. There were 15 Kyrgyzstan pastors and 50 believers that attended. The sole purpose of this fasting and prayer was to seek God’s face for their vision of ministry. Bishop S. has decided to plan five days of fasting and prayer three times a year where the pastors, missionaries, and believers will all come together.
After the time of fasting and prayer we started another School in Tokmok. Pastor Clendennen helped to fund the starting of this college. We graduated 25 students that are all going into full-time missions work. These missionaries will be sent to new areas to plant churches.
There were many testimonies at the end of these Schools. Many spoke of radical changes in their lives, views, and their approach to the ministry.
All of the local ministers, students, bishops, and the SOC team in Kyrgyzstan, want to thank everyone who help make this work possible by your prayers and financial support. You are a great blessing to the Central Asian Church.
God bless you,
