Restoring Kyrgyz Faith

Often I read a passage that I believe pertains to Kyrgyz. The following is from the prophet Isaiah. I can envision Kyrgyz speaking freedom and beauty to those suffering around the globe.:

The Spirit of the Supreme Lord (Tengir) is on me, because the Lord has picked me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to announce that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord's favor has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies. To all who mourn in Israel (Jakyb), he will give beauty for ashes, joy instead of mourning, praise instead of despair. For the Lord has planted them like strong and graceful oaks for his own honor.
They will rebuild the ancient ruins, repairing cities long ago destroyed. They will revive them, though they have been empty for many generations. Foreigners will be your servants. They will feed your flocks and plow your fields and tend your vineyards. You will be called priests of the Lord, ministers of our God. You will be fed with the treasures of the nations and will boast in their riches. Instead of shame and dishonor, you will inherit a double portion of prosperity and everlasting joy.
“For I, the Lord, love justice. I hate robbery and wrongdoing. I will faithfully reward my people for their suffering and make an everlasting covenant with them. Their descendants will be known and honored among the nations. Everyone will realize that they are a people the Lord has blessed.”

I interpret "healing the ancient ruins" to mean the ancient faith, which will be restored to its original state. May the eye of Kyrgyz embrace this high view! Oomin.
