Along the Silk Road traveled by famed merchants such as Marco Polo and its pioneer Zhang Qian, we stop today in the country of Uzbekistan.
Here in this beautiful land, life can be hard. Trafficking of human life and illicit drugs are all too common, and freedoms of information and religion are tightly controlled by the government. All churches must be registered with the state, but despite persecution and harassment, God’s people continue to grow in number.
Today as many Uzbeks prepare their traditional bread called tandir non, let’s pray that Thru the Bible broadcasts introduce them to Jesus, the Bread of Life. In Him may they find the nourishment, peace, and hope they are looking for.
Our journey of prayer continues tomorrow in the largest country of the world, Russia.
