Because of Kazakhstan’s nomadic and pastoralism lifestyle, they had a strong oral tradition. There were many tribes from various origins, and they sought to maintain the stories and memories of their ancestors. Knowing their family lineage was important. Today, even though this value has faded, Kazakhs still see themselves as one nation. As Kazakhs see through the lens of unity, may the message of the body of Christ connect with their hearts. May the come to know the Lord and find deep comfort, security, and identity with the fact that when we know Jesus we are also apart of “the body of Christ, and each one of [us] is a part of it” (1 Corinthians 12:27).
