Coming to Christ
Anara is a gifted women’s ministry speaker and counselor who has helped hundreds of Russian speaking women realize how the Gospel truth empowers to overcome hardships and to live a life that glorifies God.
Anara was born into a Muslim family in Kazakhstan at the time when it was still under atheist control of the Soviet Union. In 1997 Anara and her husband Madi came to Christ a few years after getting married. They attended a Russian Baptist church where they were baptized. Their conversion from Islam resulted in much persecution from non- believing relatives and authorities including being removed out of their home with 3 young children and an infant. The Kazakh authorities threatened to take away their children if they don’t stop practicing Christianity.
