Kyrgyzstan lies at the crossroad of several great civilizations.  The Silk Road and other commercial and cultural routes pass through or near the country.
Because of the high cost of fuel, much of the farming in Kyrgyzstan is still done by hand and by horse, as it has been for centuries.
About 80 percent of the population of Kyrgyzstan us Muslim; about 17 percent follow Russian Orthodoxy, and 3 percent other religions.
The Adventist Church has 757 members in Kyrgyzstan, meaning there is one Adventist for every 7,530 people.
