Encourage Eldos From Central Asia

In some parts of Central Asia, leaving Islam to follow Jesus can have severe consequences. When Eldos converted to Christianity, he was beaten severely by Islamic extremists. They forced him to deny Jesus and become a Muslim again.

Eldos was hospitalised with a damaged eye, missing teeth, a jaw fracture and possible bleeding on the brain. Doctors weren’t sure he would survive.

When Eldos regained consciousness, he said “I am still alive because of the prayers of many people, I can feel it. Thank you!’

Eldos continues to undergo surgery. Men from his church guard his hospital bed every day in case Eldos is attacked again.

Eldos’ family have been threatened to keep quiet. His sister witnessed the attack and miscarried her baby because of the trauma and stress.

Write to encourage Eldos, his sister Nurzhan and their family as they count the cost of following Jesus in Central Asia.

Please send cards and letters by 28 February to PO Box 51236 Tawa, Wellington 5249
