Isultan Nazarbayev, grandson of Nursultan Nazarbayev, the first president of Kazakhstan and so-called “Father of the Country,” urged everyone to “believe in Jesus Christ” through his Facebook.
On May 15th, 2020, according to local press, Isultan Nazarbayev, one of the most influential figures in Kazakhstan, has been suffering from drug addiction but recently started talking about God on his Facebook.
He has committed to dedicate everything to his faith and insisted that “we need to consider Islam as an ‘evil-created’ religion. Also, he said we need to confess that Jesus is the Son of the living God, the Savior of the world,” and asserted that the whole world will pay attention if we record “the nations and the leaders of the world who have faith in God.” He also said, “When we follow God’s will, Kazakhstan’s president will be a model for the world.”
“Kazakhstan’s capital Nur-Sultan will become ‘a new Jerusalem,’” and “Kazakhstan will be united with Russia and become a very first nation that follows God. I believe and know that the meeting with Vladimir Putin was led by God who works ahead of me,” Isultan continued.
Isultan graduated from the Royal Military Academy of Great Britain and was working in the General Reconnaissance Bureau of Ministry of National Defense; however, when his father Rakhat Aliyev died in 2015, he suffered from drug addiction. He applied for rehabilitation in England last February, 2019.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
(1 John 1:8-9)
Hallelujah! We praise our God who is doing amazing work in the people of Kazakhstan, a land with Turkic Islamic culture and history. You are leading them to confess Jesus as the only Savior and to proclaim without fear that Mohammed is a false prophet and Islam is Satan’s religion!
Lord, we believe that this is not a confession from man but a word led by the Holy Spirit. May the confession, “Jesus, You are the Son of the living God” become the only confession of Kazakhstan and Central Asia.
May their sin of loving lies and darkness be fully revealed by the Word, and especially in this month of Ramadan, may repentance that leads them to deliverance from sin burst forth from these people. Lord, cleanse them from every past unrighteousness by the blood of the only righteous man, your blood, Jesus!
May every church in Central Asia break through all their fears, overcome all threats, and rise up to preach baptism of repentance and the gospel of the Kingdom of God! May they take up the gospel and boldly march to the last unreached nations! Amen!
