[Field Story] Kurds, welcoming the coming Lord Jesus


(The photo above is unrelated to the content.)


Hello, my name is Sevinci and I am Kurdish.


I raise my five children while caring for sheep and goats in a quiet neighborhood where not many people live.


Although I had help from my husband, I was doing most of the work, so I spent every day exhausted and tired.


Then one day, I happened to meet some Christians and heard from them a story about Jesus Christ.


It was a truly amazing, because my son, who is a college student, has always told me that Jesus Christ is the only true savior.


When I heard that story, I was worried about my son who was trying to become a Christian in a Muslim society, but after hearing the love of Jesus once again, I thought it was no coincidence.


I felt like my life resembles the love and devotion of the cross. The love of God that endured death, which was incomparable to the fatigue of my life, filled my heart.


I confessed that Jesus is my Savior. I still don't have much faith and confidence in this love, so there are times when I waver, but please pray for me that my life will be filled with joy and hope in Jesus.


7 Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains.
8 You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. (James 5:7-8)

God, the Father of all nations, we thank you that you so loved Sevinci that you allowed her to hear about you as the savior through his college student son and also through the Christians. We confess that there are no such thing as coincidences in your work.


Faith comes from hearing, and hearing comes from the word of Christ. We praise the Lord for allowing Sevinci, who was living in exhaustion and fatigue, to hear the love of Jesus and confess that He is the Savior.


It is truly difficult to become a Christian in a Muslim society, but help her to endure and be firm in her heart that she may not be shaken by any hardships and persecutions until the day of our Lord’s return.


May Sevinci’s confidence in love and faith increase every day, and may she rise up as a witness of the gospel of Jesus Christ among the Kurds in these last days, with the coming of the Lord so near.


Just as a farmer hopes for precious fruit from the land and waits patiently for the early and late rains, may the Kurds become a people that prepare the way for the return of Jesus Christ as they move forward sowing the seeds of the gospel in the midst of this land!
