    Scott performed in Çanakkale, Antakya, Antalya, Marmaris and Ankara. Unfortunately, we had a major accident with our minibus. Despite that, we were encouraged by the positive response to our first-ever tour in Canakkale. We had a great mini-concert in tea garden where the gospel was shared openly, as well as a turnout of 1500 in Selucia... another great breakthrough! A number of professions of faith were made with one in Ankara praying to receive Christ. "I would like more info through you booklets and also to meet and talk with someone more about Jesus Christ."
