Hello. I’m Dana. I’m from Dagestan.
I was born and grew up as a Muslim. But I got to know about Jesus through a Christian friend of mine. I began to read the Bible with her and asked many questions. During quarantine, I always tried to attend worship, even if it was hard to gather. I wanted to know the truth, and Jesus met me! I have accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior.
I shared this great news to my close friends and family, and I also told my professor. Even though I lost some friends from this, I didn’t want to hide this truth.
Sometimes, I get scared, but I can’t not share the gospel, because this grace that has saved me is so great!
Acts 1:8 says, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Amen! Just as the Word says, the Holy Spirit shall come upon Dagestan and shall cover this land. And the young generation will proclaim the name of Jesus to the ends of the earth!
And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from Him and healed them all.
(Luke 6:19 NKJV)
God, thank You for giving Sister Dana the heart to seek out the truth and leading her to believe in Jesus. Thank You for raising her up as Your daughter who shall advance the grace of salvation to many.
Just as Sister Dana confessed, may Dagestan become bold witnesses of the gospel. Fill Sister Dana and the Dagestani young generation with the Holy Spirit, and pour out the power of salvation upon everyone she meets.
May all who are searching for the truth like Sister Dana meet You, Jesus, through her! And may everyone who is struggling and directionless in this life find victory over sin and pain and receive salvation in Jesus’ name alone!
May the Dagestani church rise up to make disciples of all nations! May Dagestan raise up witnesses of Jesus to the very ends of the earth! Amen!
