The 8000 mile round trip to Eastern Turkey and back was not without its fair few challenges!
However we have already heard that since praying and fasting for a couple of days in one north-eastern province, the number of believers in the province has now doubled! The Lord God is Mighty to Save!
The Turkish government put on mass 'Iftar' end of fast dinners. Here, we joined 500 Kurds and Syrian refugees in the breaking of their daily Ramadan fast. We were welcomed very warmly by Muslim families and individuals alike.
Due to a change of events, we had the unexpected bonus of a spontaneous trip to Iraq! This was quite a journey involving an armed convoy along the Turkish/Syrian border as we entered Iraq. In Iraq we met some friends and Iraqi Christians. It was so encouraging for us all to hear their testimonies and to pray together.
The August trip to Cairo has been cancelled. However please join us in remembering the nation and people of Egypt. We will specifically be fasting lunches over 2nd-6th September to pray and invite you to join with us.
We recommend reading this link to better understand the current situation and in understanding how to pray. https://www.sat7usa.org/understanding-the-present-situation-in-egypt
