Exciting Tatar Update - November 2018


We are excited to let you know that the Tatar Focus has extended its partnership with the Association of Christian Evangelical Churches of Tatarstan by adding a new partner ministry: the Eurasian Ministry College in Kazan (a ministry of People International).


The college accepts students recommended by the churches and we have adopted 3 students this year: Rasin, Tural and Alexey. All three of these young men are preparing to be used by God in evangelism, church planting and pastoring in one of the remaining districts without a Gospel witness (there are many).


Praise God with us that Jesus is actively building his church and sending laborers into His field. You can join us in praying for and encouraging them by downloading this prayer guide.


Also, People International has initiated a focused Week of Prayer for the peoples of Central Asia, including Tatarstan, on Nov 4-10.


We are also thrilled to share that God has called a Tatar family to move to the Arsky District as missionaries with the aim of eventually planting a church. We praise God for this huge answer to prayer!



This Focus exists to see a multiplying movement of disciples making disciples among the Volga Tatars of Tatarstan. The TFT works toward this goal, along with the Midland Free congregation, in partnership with stateside churches and agencies, National and ex pat field workers, and through strategic projects and much prayer. Want to be part of God’s mission to the unreached?
