The following is a testimony of a mother of students from Kara-Balta School.
Testimony| December 2021|Kara Balta School
I am Galina, I have 5 children and 3 of them attend Nariste Christian School in Kara-Balta, Alexander, a 6th grader, Anna, a 3rd grader, and Veronica, a 2nd grader.
We are a family of believers, we go to church every week and that is why we appreciate that there is a school like this in our city. In 2020 in our large family, there was a big trial. My husband Konstantin was diagnosed with meroblastic leukemia. A long process of battling the disease began, he was getting treatments in the clinic, and he underwent chemotherapy. He gave up his work and received disability. Disability benefits are not great and for our family, it was very difficult to pay the full cost of the school, but we really wanted our children to continue to study in a Christian school. God so blessed us that last year, after we were in arrears on our payment, the school coordinators talked to us about the reason for the debt, and after learning the details, they sent a petition to MCCF for possible sponsorship to pay the tuition for our children. And thank God! God saw and answered our prayer. Since then we have been receiving a tuition discount for our three children. This is a tremendous help to our family in such a difficult time.
