Dear Friends,

This month we will give you microcosm of what is happening around Turkey through 5 different stories in 5 different provinces. These days many are seeking, finding and transferring their allegiance from the Kingdom of Darkness to the Kingdom of Light. 

Bursa

 

 At least one of the contacts that we received went to Bursa Protestant Church where she met with some of our national brothers and sisters.  I wasn't there that particular day but she mentioned that I had directed her to the fellowship where she could talk with someone if she liked. So thankful for how God is faithful to draw people to his church. God is doing a work here in this province.  He is calling dead people to life. 

 

 

Kahramanmaraş

Friday we met with Mualla who came with a friend. We were originally quite disappointed because she talked about her thesis, the golden mean in Christianity, and the birthdate of Jesus in Di Vinci’s paintings… and then her friend left and she talked much more openly about her life. Her mother and fiancé know of her interest, but no one else does. We asked her if she wanted to meet Sam (a believer ın the area) and she did, so we called him to come. Before he got there 2 friends came by. Finally Mualla and Sam were able to share more deeply. She wants to do basic lessons with Metin our pastor. She’s a teacher and her fiancé is in the military so they will probably be transferred outside of Maraş. I left the book “My Name is Woman” with Sam to give to her later.

 Tokat



In the town of Niksar in the Tokat province we met with Tolga. He explained that he had graduated from the literature department of Karadeniz University. He now is working in Tokat at the local university. We had a long and blessed time of sharing. He said he definitely wanted to meet regularly with Şahin to study the scrıptures.

 

 Batman

 


We met wıth about 10 people in Batman. One of these was Dasten. He has truly believed through reading the New Testament. He is a young brother who wants to be baptized. He is a brother who wants to share the peace he's received from God with others. Şaban, who visited with me, will visit there twice a month and do Bible studies with 3 different brothers regularly.

 

 Muğla

 

 

We visited Abe with Hans and 3 other local believers. Abe previously had contact with Jehovah Witnesses but realized fairly quickly that their teachings were not right. He wants to learn more deeply about Christianity. Praise the Lord a believer in the area (Ali) and they have already started Bible Studies and they are meeting together every day.

 

These are just a few of the many Turks who are seeking God and finding him through Jesus Christ. Please pray for these people, the provinces they live in and the many many others who are finding the road to true life in Jesus.
