Deepening economic crisis and worsening human rights are taking Turkmenistan to the edge of catastrophe. A recent report is warning economic investors to think twice before establishing connections. Turkmenistan’s gas and oil reserves continue to attract investors, but there is increasing international voice calling for governments and businesses to leverage their potential investments to see changes take place.

Ask God to open the doors to this very closed nation.
Pray that God will make a way where there seems to be no way (The Bible, 1 Corinthians 16:9).
