Jesus is our Savior!

It is has been some time since I wrote to you, but I am so excited to tell you about what happened in the last few months . We had a great time with believer students who came to Almaty for a summer project from South Korea. Through this project, we built relationships with new students and we will be able to share the gospel with them in the future.

God is brought him through Summer project

We met one guy named Aidos through our English summer project, and now I have a good relationship with him.

We had many good conversations and we quickly were able to talk about spiritual topics. One night we talked the whole night! I shared with him about my faith in Jesus and he shared also about his views about God through his study of Islam.

I want to share with you the story of his life: One night he shared about his family and what is going on in his life. His family has a lot of money, but this money came through his father who was a drug dealer. Eventually, his father was arrested and sent to prison. In his family, there are 4 children, and his mother decided to continue his work so that she could provide for her family. He shared this with great pain, how much his family has suffered, and especially that his mother also was sent to prison and that his father died while in prison. His mother was released from prison and they are now starting a new life.

Through all of these difficulties in his life, I see how in his heart He wants to know God. All summer our friendship became closer, and we had many good conversations about God. I can see that God is working in his heart, and that his life is changing.

7. In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,

8. Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.

9. Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again;

10. Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.

(Titus 2:7-10)

Please Pray:

1. For our team, for unity and good relationships with each other.

2. For God to give us many new and open students to work with this year.
3. For the Holy Spirit to work through us and in the lives of those we work with this year.
