Description: The ethnogenesis of todayís Bashkir people, as a distinct ethnicity from the Tatars, can be traced to around the 16th century when they were invaded by the Russians. Genetically, they are a mixture of the Oguz, Bulgars, and various Turko-Mongol tribes.

Prayer Points:
• The government has made registration of churches difficult, and is actively oppossing their work. Pray for Godís intervention in this situation, and for leaders that are seekers after Him.
• Most Bashkir are in rural areas and remain largely unevangelized. Pray for open doors to reach them, and for the necessary personnel to establish new fellowships in every town and village.
• The Bible is being adapted from the Tatar translation, a people which the Bashkir have distanced themselves from. Pray for sensitivity in this process, and for full acceptance of the new Bashkir Bible.

A Prayer: Heavenly Father, establish your church among the Bashkir and reveal your heart to each of them through Jesus.
Each year 15,000 Bashkir Muslims die without Christ.
