    Büyük Ada Outreach in Turkey

    April 23 - April 23

    On the 23rd of April every year thousands of pilgrims (the majority Muslims) celebrate Saint George's day. A traditional pilgrimage takes place on Büyükada, one of the islands 30 kilometres off the coast of Istanbul, Turkey. People from all walks of life come to climb one of the hills to the 12th Century Greek monastery of Saint George. There, they pray that their wishes would come true or to get a particular blessing. Local believers come to share to these often-desperate people the Hope we have in Jesus. Evangelism includes distributing literature, offering prayer and using the creative arts.

    Tour Highlights

    This year we added a lot of national believers to the mix team - swelling team numbers to around 25 with 1 band, a dance troupe and two drama teams. It was a great time for training and encouragement in such a relatively safe environment. It was great to see at least one person come to faith after watching what we did, chatting with team members and also other local believers standing nearby.

    Tour Highlights

    This tour was a testing of the waters in Turkey. After having a bad experience with touring in Turkey right after the coup attempt and with the proclamation of a state of emergency in the country it was decided to hold off on tours until things cooled down. This short tour gave us an opportunity to see how things were after time passed as well as share the Gospel on the streets of Turkey on tour again.
