About This Cause
Our partners in Uzbekistan oversee a house church network of about five house churches, but many believers are Karakalpak. Most of the world’s population of 880,000 Karakalpaks live in Uzbekistan. According to the Joshua Project, the Karakalpaks are considered a frontier mission which is Joshua Project’s highest priority.
1. The house church movement among the Karakalpaks would continue to grow.
2. That the movement will spillover among the Uzbek population as well.
