Despite determined opposition and difficult circum stances in the former Soviet republic of Uzbekistan, the gospel was enthusiastically received in the city of Samarkand, where Johann Niedermaier, president of the Swiss Union, held a series of evangelistic meetings. The city is 70 percent Muslim. More than 1,000 people attended the meetings each day. Scores of them accepted Jesus, requested baptism, and joined the Seventh-day Adventist Church family. Follow-up outreach and nurture is taking place in home Bi ble fellowship groups.—Martin Weber
