“Every day, early in the morning, we pray…we see the Silk Road filled with worshiping believers in Jesus. From China to Jerusalem… churches will happen… we believe.” – Dr. Kim Sam Seong
Dr. Kim Sam Seong, a modern day Paul the apostle, from South Korea, has been used by God, in Kazakhstan, to plant numerous churches, along with bible colleges and training centers throughout this region. Central Asia consists of the five former Soviet republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. Other areas are often included such as Afghanistan, northeastern Iran and western parts of the People’s Republic of China such as Xinjiang, Mongolia, Kashmir, northern Pakistan, southwestern and middle China such as Tibet, Qinghai, Gansu and Inner Mongolia, and southern parts of Siberia may also be included in Central Asia.
Dr Kim and his team have planted Bible Colleges in all the Stan’s, and in Mongolia and Turkey. Dr Kim shares, “God spoke to me several years ago that I must plant churches along the Silk Road, all the way back to Jerusalem. To do this I needed many workers; they had to be trained, but I did not know how. God brough Vision with Dr. Tim Dailey and others to help me; we are doing our best to raise up workers for Christ and to plant 5,000 churches by 2015…In spite of many difficulties, God is helping us.”
