Y. was born into a Muslim family in a middle eastern country and raised to be a strong Muslim boy. He did not find peace and joy in Islam. After many trials as a young man, a Korean missionary gave him a New Testament and he began reading it, which led to his Christian conversion.
After healing from an illness at this time, Y. knew that he could not keep this wonderful news of salvation inside. God put a strong call on his heart to share the Good News with everyone he knew (Muslims) around him. He later became an elder, preacher, and evangelist of a church in his native country.
Since those early days, Y. has been to many parts of the world, evangelizing, starting churches, and discipling converts, focusing on those with a muslim background. He attended a Bible college for 3 years in his native country.
Y. and his wife D. moved to the United States in 2009. From 2012-2018 they lived in Houston, Texas where they had a ministry to refugees and Muslims. In August 2018 they moved to Colorado and began serving an ongoing ministry of evangelism to refugees in Eastern European countries, visiting 2-4 times a year to train Muslim back ground leaders and to do street evangelism. There are hundreds of thousands of Muslims in these countries.
Y. and his wife are also serving locally in Colorado to reach the International Students and Muslims in the area.
Other aspects of their ministry include annual training/fellowship camps, providing materials (Bibles etc.) and being available to the Muslim back ground leaders for training and counseling.
Y. and D. were married in 2001 and have two children, a boy and a girl.
