The 700 Club

The Good Shepherd of Kyrgyzstan

Debbie White - 700 Club Producer

Mountains cover more than three-fourths of the country of Kyrgyzstan. These mountains are where Erkin spends his days as a shepherd. He lives well below the poverty line. His salary is the equivalent of eighty dollars a month. Erkin struggles to provide for his wife and six children.
 
“I feel much pain because I earn so little,” said Erkin, “and can’t provide my family all they need.” 

“Our father works a lot but doesn’t get much money,” said their daughter. “So we don’t have enough for food. We often only eat noodles or bread.”

Nurzada, Erkin’s wife, does her best to take care of her husband and their six children.

“I am hurt when I see somebody insulting my children for wearing old clothes,” said Nurzada.  “Is it their fault?”

Nurzada and Erkin have one dream: For their children to have a better life.

“I would like to breed hens.” said Erkin. “I would be able to sell eggs and breed chickens.”

When Orphan’s Promise heard about Erkin and his family, help was quickly on the way.
We gave them three goats for milking and thirty laying hens.

“It is an amazing day today,” said Erkin. “You brought us goats and chickens. The children immediately decided who would take care of the chickens and who would take care of the goats. All of them are happy.”

 “You can’t imagine what happiness and joy it is for us!” said Nurzada. “Now Erkin can provide well for his family and Nurzada can sell milk and eggs to her neighbors.”

“My parents will be able to buy good clothes for me now and nobody will make fun of me anymore,” said their daughter.

“Thank you for everything you have done for us,” said Nurzada. “I wish you the very best.”

“I’m so excited that I cannot find words, but my heart expresses gratitude to you,” said Erkin. “Thank you”
