“I believe that God brought me to the school”
I have studied at Kara-Balta Christian School since 9th grade. I came to the school in a miraculous way. During one summertime, I participated in a Christian camp where I met people who recommended this school to me. I brought my documents and passed an exam. Even though my scores were low, I was accepted. Now I understand that God brought me to this school.
When I transferred to the Kara-Balta school, I began going to church, but there were no changes in my life. Even though I heard Him calling me, and I learned a lot about Him and His principles, there were no changes at all.
In 2019, God turned my life upside down. He made me leave all the worldly beliefs and follow Him. It’s been almost two years since then. In 2020, I began to prepare for water baptism. This step was important to me, and it took me a long time for me to get there, but I did it consciously. And in 2021, I was baptized. I believe that God forgave all of my sins, and I became His child. I realize now that God would not let me be baptized until I let the sins go, the sins that were pulling me down. God gives me reason to be joyful every day. I see his works in my life every day, and I feel His presence in my life. I am thankful to God and to this school.
