Hello, my name is Ivek. I’m an ordinary young man from Kazakhstan. One day, I met Christian friends on the street. Our friendship deepened, and I heard the gospel from them.
Soon after, I encountered and accepted Jesus, who is the way, the truth, and the life. Now I diligently join our regular worship meetings and keep my faith. Thankfully, my mother also joins the worship services diligently.
But Satan would not leave us alone. Young people in my neighborhood found out that my family attended church and threatened me not to go to church. But because I trust in Jesus, I told them to leave me alone and that I would keep my faith.
The neighborhood young men beat me up, and now I am suffering from concussion symptoms. Please pray that I may still never deny Jesus but continue to confess my faith, regardless of how significant the threat and danger may be.
Please pray for me to recover fast and for my faith to grow stronger.
So when the centurion, who stood opposite Him, saw that He cried out like this and breathed His last, he said, “Truly this Man was the Son of God!”
As Jesus carried the cross and bore the marks of suffering, so our brother Ivek’s body also now bears the marks of Jesus’ suffering.
Please bless Brother Ivek to walk the path of faith until the end, only focused on heavenly rewards. Please heal his concussion completely in the name of Jesus!
As the centurion who was present at Jesus’ crucifixion confessed Jesus as the Son of God, the neighborhood young people who beat up Ivek shall also repent and confess that Jesus is the Son of God.
May the Kazakhstan church participate in the suffering of Christ and prepare the way of His return! Amen!
