Pray for Yklas Kabduakasov, Imprisoned for Sharing His Faith


September 10, 2015 Kazakhstan’s secret police arrested Yklas Kabduakasov, a 54-year-old new believer from Kazakhstan, on Aug. 14, 2015. Kabduakasov fearlessly shared the gospel with his family and friends after his conversion from Islam. He was arrested after secret police searched his home and confiscated Christian books. The church where Kabduakasov worships was searched the same day. On Aug. 15, a court in the capital city of Astana ordered him to be held for two months in pre-trial detention for spreading “religious discord.”

Pray for Yklas Kabduakasov, Sentenced to Two Years’ Imprisonment


Christians in Kazakhstan believe that Kabduakasov was targeted for his conversion from Islam to Christianity and for sharing the gospel with other Muslims. They believe that the secret police are using these intimidation tactics because they want to make Kabduakasov an example and send a message to all Kazakhs that they will face a similar fate if they convert to Christianity. Please pray specifically for Yklas Kabduakasov that God would:  Strengthen his faith and help him go through this trial.  Comfort his family, especially his wife, who is in the last months of pregnancy.  Soften the hearts of his persecutors, that they would drop the charges against him.  Provide funds for his family, for legal fees, and for food during his time in detention.
