Dear Friends,

We have many, many people who are contacting us these days through many different channels. Here are two fellows who contacted us through our chatline and the internet:

Sometimes it's the smallest things that can change a life. But the ideal way for that to happen is to have a living on-going relationship with Jesus. Then it happens organically both on an individual level or on a community level.

Let us share a short blurb from a recent conversation on our chatline:

Irfan - Istanbul

 

Irfan: I have a great sympathy and extreme interest in Christianity.

Irfan: A thing that happened in a church had a huge effect on me.

Ayhan: I'm glad. Explain it to me.

Irfan: I went to a church on Sunday and joined the service. There wasn't a place to sit but a very nice and loving woman spent so much time in finding a place for us to sit it was amazing to me.

 

Yasin – İzmit

We met Yasin last year on a visit. He owns a Turkish meatball shop and is 32 years old. He is a beautiful brother who has a wonderful testimony.

The Holy Spirit greatly worked in his heart. While listening to some Christian songs he asked the Lord to give him a sign. After a while he heard the Lord's voice: "Go outside and look above your apartment building”, and when he did this he saw a ball of light pass by. A while later he was able to contact the BCC. He was followed up but because he has to work in his shop he is unable to go to a church on Sunday. He had lost the number of our follow-up worker but saw his videos on YouTube and left a message asking him to contact him. He was very happy to be in contact again and wept after meeting us again. God continues to encourage him through dreams and studying the Bible. He was recently baptized.

Pray for Irfan and Yasin. May God bless them and many others through them as there relationship with King Jesus continues to grow!

Blessings,

Dear Friends,

Here's a few people you can remember in prayer as they continue on the Father's way from various places around the country:

Orçun from İzmir


Suat met with him for 3 hours and he has accepted the Lord. His wife Güngör came to church with him, but she has not yet believed. We are soooo happy for him and that he is coming to Karataş church.

 

 

Oğuzhan from Afyon                                                                              

 

We met with Oğuzhan in Afyon. He is 32 years old and 1 1/2 years ago he believed but then turned away from the faith for a period but now has totally given himself to Christ. We studied from Matthew 5 and had a wonderful time.

 

 Saim - Giresun

 

Saim is in his 30's. He spent his childhood in İstanbul but after his father died he moved back to his home in Giresun with his mother. He now works in the office of one of the schools there. He eventually came to faıth ın Jesus. We have begun to do Discovery Bible Studies with him and also introduced him to the brothers in Trabzon.

 

 

 

Mehmet from Ağrı

Mehmet is a BCC student who came to faith last year and  would like prayer. His mother recently told him that he was no longer her son. His brothers and sisters are calling him, cursing him and saying it would have been better if he was an atheist. He was considered the spiritual father of his older brother's children after his older brother died. But he is not allowed to see his nephews and nieces anymore. He was also set to get a share of the families inheritance. He has been told he will not now receive that.

Mehmet's prayer: "Lord Jesus, I am you lost son. As you drew me to yourself draw my famıly to yourself and touch their hearts. You drew me to yourself and saved me Lord Jesus. Forgive me and give my brothers and myself strength in this regard. That we may be able to boldly proclaim the truth of your kingdom. Please touch the hearts of those who persecute us. We have come to you and you have sheltered us.

Ezgi from Nevşehir

 

Ezgi came to faith after a very difficult time of losing her father. She loved him so much and wanted to have him see her through her university graduation, and marriage, and children, etc. When she fell into depression she decided to look for "a Father's Love".

As she researched the Incil she found the Father's Love and salvation in Jesus. After having several dreams she was convinced that she needed to be baptized. She stepped out in faith and followed Jesus and was baptized into eternal life!
