I am Elmurat and I was born and raised in Kyrgyzstan in the typical Muslim family. My life before Christ was very dark and I was lost. My ungodly lifestyle brought a lot of problems in my relationship with my parents. In 2001, everything changed, I heard about Jesus for the first time, praise God! I was in a church building filled with people who were full of love and life. The atmosphere in that place was so special it touched my heart and that day I became a follower of Isa Masih. Since that day everything in my life has changed. God gave me joy, peace and love I never had before. My parents found out and were concerned about my mental state. When I shared with them who had changed me, my father kicked me out of the house. My pastor found out I was kicked out with no where to go and he sent me to Bible seminary in Moscow for one year. While at that Bible seminary I met my now wife, Gulmira, she is from Uzbekistan, Tashkent. We got married one year after seminary and were sent as missionaries to the southern part of Kyrgyzstan and during this time the Lord changed my parents hearts and they blessed our marriage. From 2007-2012 we served at a communication center and with the Jesus Film Project. After completing my Bachelors in Theology, my church anointed me as a pastor. Father God had mercy on my family with both of my parents coming to Christ – Praise Jesus! My wife and I are blessed with three amazing boys and one princess!
