My name is Deniz. I was born in 1980. I am a Meskhetian Turk. I was born in Uzbekistan. In 1944 our people were deported from our homeland in Georgia (near Turkey) to Central Asia. In 1989 ethnic conflict between Meskhetian Turks and Uzbeks forced us to flee and become refugees. My family settled in western Russia. I also have relatives in Azerbaijan and in the north of Russia. In 1996 I met a believer who shared with me about his faith in the Messiah. I am particularly fond of history so while reading the New Testament I noticed how biblical prophecies have been fulfilled through history and many of them fulfilled in the 20th century. I repented in 1998, and in 1999 I was baptized. I am now enrolled in a missions training program. Meskhetian people have been in my heart and I want to serve among them for the glory of the Lord. I do not know any other Meskhetian believers in Isa (Jesus). Please pray for me, that God will send me to work among my people. Please pray for the salvation of my mother, grandmother and relatives. Thank you for praying for Meskhetian Turks.
God Bless you,
