Christian Father in Danger

Makset and his family in 2010

Makset Djabbarbergenov and his wife are the parents of four sons, and they are expecting a baby. About five years ago, they left their home country, Uzbekistan, and moved to Kazakhstan. Makset was in danger of being arrested in Uzbekistan for teaching people about Jesus and for passing out Christian literature.

Now Makset has been detained by police in Kazakhstan. Officials are trying to decide whether or not to send him back to Uzbekistan. He faces years in prison if he is sent back.

Please pray for Makset and his family.
