Three issues dominate Kazakhstan at the moment: the succession of President Nazarbayev, its sizeable Russian minority, and the hundreds of Kazakh citizens who have joined radical Muslims in the Middle East. Persecution is strongest in the private, national and church spheres. This is typical for a situation in which Dictatorial Paranoia is the leading persecution engine. Pressure from Islamic Oppression is present mostly in the private, family and community spheres and is exerted by the social environment. The overall pressure in Kazakhstan is fired by a regime that seeks to increase its control more and more.
You can pray 1 Corinthians 15:58:
“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain.”
