  Unreached of the Day: Shughni, Shugnan-Rushan of Tajikistan

Shughni, Shugnan-Rushan of Tajikistan
The ethnic identity of the Shughnis is based upon religion. Since the eleventh century, they have belonged to the Ismaili sect of Islam. This religious group follows the Aga Khan and is also known as the "Seveners." They believe that important cosmic and historical events occur in series of seven. Their doctrine is very secretive and private, understood by the "select few." Ismailis have no mosques or official clerics, but private houses of prayer and itinerant clergy are numerous. In order to communicate with the world around them, the Shughni use the Tajik and Russian languages.

Ministry Obstacles
Spiritual opposition will be present when Jesus Christ is presented to a person. Pray against this, as the Gospel comes to the Shughni people. God is greater.

Outreach Ideas
Pray that Gospel radio will become widely available to the Shughni people in both Afghanistan and Tajikistan. Pray for excellent programming so they will listen and understand.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There probably is not a single follower of Christ among this people group. However, please pray for the many who will soon come to know and follow Him. Pray they will live holy lives and will represent Christ well to their neighbors.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Shugni people will be completely set free from influences which cloud their understanding of who Jesus is ("Isa", in the Koran). Pray the Holy Spirit will give them understanding, and give them faith to believe.

Scripture Focus
"This gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations and then the end will come." Matthew 24:14
