Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
American Tajiks are Americans who are descended from Tajikistan in Central Asia or are Tajiks who have come to live in America.

Most Tajiks live in New York, California, Washington and Nebraska. A lot come for work and most then live in America permanently. Tajik students also come to America. Many Tajiks marry each other.

There are Tajik Associations in America. These help with preserving Tajik culture and helping the needs of Tajik Americans as well as integration with Americans.

The Tajiks in America speak Tajik and English. Islam is their main religion.

Prayer Points
* Pray that God will give the Tajiks dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that the Tajiks as they read the Koran will be attracted to Jesus, read the Bible and give their lives to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that American Christians will help lead them to salvation.
