Hello. I’m Bair. I’m from the Russian republic of Buryatia, and my family is Buddhist.
My family is very influenced by Buddhism, so there are many idols and altars that symbolize Buddhism in our house.
Recently, I was invited to a worship gathering by my Christian friends and there my heart was moved greatly.
My friends told me about Jesus, and I prayed and accepted Jesus as my Savior.
Soon, I will leave Buryatia for a while to study abroad. I promised my Christian friends that I will read the Bible and pray every day, even though I am leaving and won’t be able to physically live a life of faith with them.
Even as I go abroad to study, I want to be led by God. I also want to meet Jesus more passionately with a burning fire.
Please pray for my family, a Buddhist family, to meet Jesus and stand as a family that believes in him.
I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope, I wait for the LORD more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning.
Dear God, thank you for calling Brother Bair from Buryatia, a place full of idolatry, to receive Jesus as Savior.
May Brother Bair be guided by God even as he goes abroad to study.
May Buryatia, which has long bowed down to wicked idols and walked the path of destruction, now come to wait for the Lord and admire and hope for your Word.
When they meet the truth, let at once them cut off all the evil idols that have deceived them and led them to destruction and come to our Lord Jesus.
As Buryatia admires the Lord with a thirsty heart that is greater than the watchman waiting for the morning to come, let that admiration be spread out from Buryatia to all nations! Amen!
