We have the opportunity to come alongside Eldos Satar Uluu and his sister Aygul* by writing and sending them digital letters of encouragement and support. Eldos is a young Christian Kyrgyz man who was attacked on October 16th by three radical Muslim men who came to his home and beat him while trying to force him to convert back to Islam. He was seriously injured and is still recovering in the hospital from his injuries and multiple surgeries.
Not only is Eldos recovering from physical wounds but he is also experiencing emotional distress as a result of the attack and continued threats of violence. To make matters worse, Open Doors has learned the attackers and their relatives are coming to the hospital where Eldos is staying to force him to recant his testimony about the attack. They are threatening Eldos’ life as well as the lives of his Christian relatives.
Eldos’ family, including his sister Aygul, are Christians. Aygul witnessed her brother being beaten and it affected her greatly. She was six months pregnant at the time of the attack. Sadly, she later suffered a miscarriage on October 24th which her doctors attribute to the trauma she experienced witnessing her brother’s attack. She is grieving deeply.
Please take a moment and send Eldos and Aygul a message. They could benefit greatly from knowing that they are not alone and that believers, like yourselves, are praying for them from all corners of the world.
