Ingush People in Kazakhstan

by CR

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world, John 16:33, NLT
The Ingush people have suffered greatly at the hands of Russia. Only Jesus can bring them true peace and victory over anger and bitterness. Originally from Russia’s Caucasus region, the Ingush number over 420,000 in that region, with approximately 20,000 more in Kazakhstan where they were deported during World War II.
Though living in continual hardship, the Ingush have a history rich in storytelling, music, dance, art, and wood carving. A strongly traditional people in customs and behavior, they are nonetheless considered well-educated and sophisticated in the modern world.
The Ingush people are Sunni Muslims, with many following Sufism, the mystical branch of Islam. The Ingush hold strongly to their Islamic beliefs, which forms a key component of cultural tradition and their ethnic identity. There are very few followers of Christ among the Ingush in Russia, and no believers among them in Kazakhstan. The Ingush language contains only Bible portions along with the JESUS Film and audio recordings about Jesus.
