You have to have permission to go out, and if you don’t do so then you could get a jail sentence of one year.” Ulrich adds that the president of Kazakhstan can be influenced, so she’s encouraging Christians to get involved. “They do not want to be at odds with the West, so the best thing we can do as Christians is to write a letter of protest.” Call our resource line or visit our web site to find out where to write.
